In response to the Kuomintang’s criticism of the central government’s waste of public funds and the purchase of too many rapid screening reagents to distribute, Minister of Health and Welfare Xue Ruiyuan said in a joint interview with the media today (8th) that such remarks are an afterthought. After all, rapid screening is related to people’s health, and the government’s position It is “I would rather have too much than not enough.” In addition, Chen Peizhe, an academician of the Academia Sinica, recently questioned that the command center is a high-end stock price speculator. Xue Ruiyuan countered by saying that he hopes Chen Peizhe will clearly point out who is speculating in the command center? Xue Ruiyuan believes that although academicians of Academia Sinica are very distinguished, they do not have the right to be immune from speech, and suggested that Chen Peizhe should be careful when speaking.
The Kuomintang’s Changhua County Council caucus held a press conference on the 7th to criticize the central government for using people’s tax money to send COVID-19 rapid screening reagents. After the epidemic, the rapid screening reagents piled up, which was a waste of public funds. In this regard, Minister of Health and Welfare Xue Ruiyuan said in an interview in front of the Legislative Yuan’s Health and Environment Committee today (8th) that there is no way to estimate the government’s procurement of materials accurately, otherwise it will be insufficient or too much, because this (rapid screening) is related to On matters related to the people, the government’s stance is “it’s better to have too much than not enough.” Therefore, he believes that those remarks made with the benefit of hindsight are all in vain. This kind of behavior is actually very devoid of empathy.
In addition, according to media reports, the prosecutors signed an indictment on the high-end vaccine case 63. Chen Peizhe, an academician of the Academia Sinica, recently questioned the command center as a high-end stock price speculator. In response, Xue Ruiyuan choked back, “Who in the command center is speculating in stocks? I hope he (Chen Peizhe) will point it out. If he dares to tell who it is, we will take care of it.”
Xue Ruiyuan said that Chen Peizhe is a scientist. Scientists must pay attention to evidence and cannot make such random accusations without evidence and inconsistent with the basic principles of scientists. Xue Ruiyuan also emphasized that although academicians of Academia Sinica are very noble, they have no immunity from speech, so it is recommended that Chen Peizhe “Be careful what you say.”
