MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In what is expected to be the most explosive yet in the series of Senate hearings on the botched Dengue mass vaccination program launched by the Aquino administration, committee chair Senator Richard Gordon revealed a new and perhaps final round of subpoenas.
Gordon told The Adobo Chronicles that his committee has issued a subpoena to thousands of local mosquitoes to shed light on the Dengvaxia controversy. The summons was issued to mosquitoes that have tested seropositive for Dengue.
The new subpoena came following the most recent Senate testimony of former President NoyNoy Aquino in which he said that the Dengvaxia vaccine does not cause Dengue. Rather, the mosquitoes that carry the virus do.
Aquino’s statement, made under oath, is by far the most significant lead that could finally put the Dengavxia controversy to rest.
