Hiwalay umanong “bansa” ang Iloilo City sa buong Pilipinas, ayon sa ilang netizen.
Mabilis kasi anila ang pagresponde ng pamunuan ng “The City of Love” sa kinahaharap na coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Nag-uumapaw din anila ang mga donasyon mula sa mayayamang pamilya at negosyanteng kaibigan ni Iloilo Mayor Jerry Treñas.
Kaya naman, sabi ng madla, mas maraming nagawa ang alkalde–na tinawag pang “It Girl” ng Iloilo–at pamunuan ng siyudad kumpara sa pambansang gobyerno.
‘Di na rin anila kinailangan ng emergency powers ni Treñas para kumilos, kumpara sa hinihiling ngayon ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte para matugunan ang krisis ng naturang pandemya sa bansa.
rich families in Iloilo are buying & donating FREE testing kits to the city, the mayor provides free bus rides to frontliners, food is delivered @ the homes of those who cant work & have no income, constant press conferences to update everyone
ILOILO IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT COUNTRY

It's no surprise that Iloilo–a province where Duterte didn't win–continues to do better than a lot of other places in the country.? They have a surplus of wise voters. It's so impressive that even the DDS once miscaptioned photos of it just to promote "Duterte's Davao." ?

Bayanihan? Iloilo has done everything on this list and MORE. So much MORE. Our Mayor didn't need EMERGENCY POWERS. But he was able to rally our city into helping each other. #UnitedIloilo #Iloilo #IloiloCity @jerry_trenas pic.twitter.com/MFAPAB96MR
