Fighting the tides: Teddy Boy Locsin clarifies alleged statement glorifying military over doctors
Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Boy Locsin clarified his earlier statement that “men in olive” is more effective in the COVID-19 response.
The abogado earned the outrage of many doctors and health frontliners for the remark.

Locsin commented that the men in white he is referring to are the know-it-all DOH doctors who are too busy dragging their feet. The abogado mentioned that he knows the doctors are working hard since his nephew is also a doctor.
The abogado emphasized that he did not mean to offend the sector in his earlier statement and for asking military officials to take a bow.
