IATF chief former General Galvez made a presentation on the state of the vaccination in the Philippines. In one of his slides, he claims that the number of Filipinos already vaccinated is 1.4 million. He then compared it with Singapore with about 1.6 million vaccinated and the number one country with the most vaccinations is Indonesia.

With Galvez report, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte immediately praised Galvez for a job well done. But, did Galvez deserve the praise?

Indonesia for example has 236 million and yet it has finished almost 16 million Indonesians vaccinated. That is 0.06%

Singapore has already vaccinated 1.6 million out of its 5.7million. That is 0.28% of theirs.

How about the Philippines? We have vaccinated 1.4 million but it only represents 0.2% of our total population of 110 million.
