The Department of Health is spending P1.8-billion for the 1 million sets of personal protective equipment it bought for the country's frontliners against COVID-19.

Health Undersecretary Rosario Vergeire was asked in an online press conference why each set cost P1,800 when the Office of the Vice President sourced PPEs for only P400 a set.

"Sinsabi lang natin di pare pareho ang ppes na binibli ng ibat ibang grupo at binibili ng DOH.Binibili namin ay mga sets na iba-iba para sa amign facilities," Vergeire said, adding that a set for the emergency room was different for the traige area.

"Ang set na prinocure namin ay pinakumpleto. Ibig sabihin meron tayong walo na PPE types sa loob nitong sets na siansabi natin," she added.

Vergeire said the sets the DOH bought included N95 masks, overalls ang gloves, head cover, shoe cover, goggles surgical mask and surgical gown.

"Kaya umabot sa ganitong halaga. Ang P1,800 na binihil ng doh, sumallaim sa procurement process ng [procurement service] ng DBM," Vergeire said.

"‘Di lang isang klase napaloob sa 1.8k, kundi 8 piraso na iba ibang ppes natin na ginagamit ng ating health care workers," sher added.
