I don't see this turning out well. Unfortunately to say the least.

The Duterte government did very little to nothing with over a year into the pandemic, huge budgets/loans, emergency powers and special legislations.

This is criminal negligence.

One of the biggest exports from Manila are healthcare workers; physicians, nurses, and other HCPs, who work in the Middle East, Europe, North America, Oceania, and some even in Japan. They go for the dollar, pound, yen, etc., and in many cases in search of the green card for the USA. Hence the shortage of staff back home.

That just reflects on the under-equipped healthcare system in the RP, and not on any virus.

Duterte's incompetence and mismanagement of his country's affairs has finally been exposed by a tiny virus which is proving much harder to kill than the tens of thousands of poor, defenseless citizens persecuted and assassinated by Duterte's goons in uniforms.

Then why hadn't other virus done the same thing? The Philippines has a lot of viruses, but no other viruses have put their under-equipped healthcare system to its knees like this Covid virus has done. Funny that

And that's the crux of this epidemic: the healthcare, the hospitals, the front-line workers getting overwhelmed

Unless someone has a solution to that problem that doesn't involve some degree of lockdown, then they cannot continue doing business as usual like there's nothing happening
