Statement

On the April 8, 2021 Zoom Meeting


Yesterday’s meeting was not a Cabinet meeting.

As mentioned, it was a zoom meeting attended by some Department Secretaries.

It was presided by the Executive Secretary to discuss COVID-19 and other related matters, such as contact tracing, the status of the hazard pay of healthcare workers, prepositioning of items for distribution and the codification of procedure for future references in case similar situation occurs, PhilHealth payments to address present surge, among others.

It was an informal but productive meeting.

We hope this clarifies the matter.
