2019-nCoV Senate hearing

Senators Joel Villanueva, Koko Pimentel, and Risa Hontiveros share a spray bottle of alcohol during a committee hearing on the government’s preparedness on the reported outbreak of the 2019-nCoV at the Senate on Tuesday. Health Secretary Francis Duque III blamed his subordinates and said “heads will roll” after he was chided by lawmakers for a “failure of leadership” due to the slow progress of tracing individuals who may have come into contact with 2 Chinese tourists who tested positive for the 2019-nCoV.
