Coronavirus in Philippines: People who have not vaccinated all over the world are becoming a cause of concern for the governments. In the Philippines too, the administration is facing this problem. Because of this, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened that those who do not get the COVID-19 vaccine will be imprisoned at home.
The Delta variant is spreading rapidly in the Philippines. In such a situation, President Rodrigo Duterte warned that citizens refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to leave the house in order to protect them from the more contagious ‘Delta’ variant of COVID-19.
ready to face trial
Philippine President Duterte said on Wednesday night that there is no law to make the ban mandatory, but he is ready to face prosecution for keeping people who spread the infection in the country within the framework of the system. The president said, ‘I care about people who do not want to get the vaccine, but they can put themselves and others in danger at any time.’ The Philippines, however, is struggling with a lack of a vaccine. About 70 lakh people have been fully immunized in the country and the first dose has been given to more than 11 million people.
Rules will be applicable in metro cities
According to President Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman Harry Roque, the instructions for those who have not been vaccinated to stay at home will be followed, especially in those metro cities where the vaccine is currently available in sufficient quantity. The spokesman also said that the government has not yet asked the police to comply with the President’s wish. There is such a plan now, but it has not been implemented yet. He told that the President is talking about the time in the future, when there will be no shortage of vaccine in the country. If even then people do not get vaccinated, then strict action will be taken against them.
5700 new cases
In the Philippines, 5735 new cases of corona virus have been reported in the last 24 hours while 176 people have died. However, during this time 4069 people were also cured of the infection. So far 15,72,287 people have been infected with COVID-19 in this country. While 27,577 people have lost their lives. There are still 56,273 active cases in the Philippines.
