Go said the incomplete delivery of such commitments, particularly to medical frontliners affected by COVID-19, is ‘’unacceptable.’’

He issued the statement after delivering a privilege speech in last Wednesday’s Senate plenary session lambasting concerned government agencies, particularly the Department of Health (DOH), for their failure to extend the financial assistance to medical frontliners who died of or were infected by the coronavirus and hospitalized.
