Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III has been the subject of criticisms from public officials, local celebrities, and ordinary citizens mainly due to his handling of the ongoing health crisis.
And now, the eldest daughter of Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Frankie, is the latest to call out Duque for whom she described as “unapologetically incompetent” for his “deeply unsettling” actions.
She wrote: “How does Duque sleep at night?” She added: “The severe lack of empathy anyone would need to be that unapologetically incompetent is seriously beyond understandable it’s so deeply unsettling.”

Meanwhile, Frankie’s dad Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, in a press release on Wednesday, August 5, urged President Rodrigo Duterte to replace Duque both as DoH secretary and Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for COVID-19 response head following issues hounding PhilHealth.
"Maawa naman sana sila sa ating mga kababayan. Maawa sila sa taumbayan. Palitan na po si Duque bilang DoH secretary at IATF head. Maghanap ng mas mayroong kakayahang sugpuin ang kambal na sakit ng COVID at kurakot. Siya ang dating presidente at ngayon ay chairman of the board ng PhilHealth. Hindi pwedeng wala siyang pananagutan sa P15-bilyong iskandalong 'yan,” he said.
