DOH Secretary tells "workaholic" P-Noy to take a break from work every 3 to 4 months


Jet Villa of reports that Health Secretary Enrique Ona ha advised President Benigno Aquino III to take longer and regular breaks from the grueling demands of his job, saying he needs to rest once in a while since he's a "workaholic."


The report quoted Ona as saying in an ambush interview on Thursday (December 26) that "Aquino III’s three-day break this month was not enough considering the 'tough' problems that he had dealt with in the past four months including the siege of Zamboanga City that left over 200 people dead and the devastation caused by super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that has so far claimed over 6,000 lives." The health secretary specifically advised Aquino to take a few days off from work every three to four months to "relax and reflect."


Malacañang earlier announced that the President will take a short holiday break starting December 27 to rest. He will interrupt his break on December 30 to attend ceremonies marking the death anniversary of Jose Rizal.
