President Rodrigo Duterte once again warned the public against leaving their homes amid the ongoing threat posed by coronavirus disease.
In his late-night address Monday, Duterte reminded Filipinos that the country’s fight against the virus “is not over.”
“Hndi ko kayo mapigilan na lumabas. Hindi ko kayo mahuli lahat. Ang problema niyan pati ‘yung mga bata kung samahin ninyo or you allow your children to go out when the place is not yet ready for them to be outside at nagkasakit, huwag ninyo kaming sisihin,” according to the President.
“Do not forget that we warned you about the grave consequences,” he added.
Duterte also reiterated the need for everyone to observe social distancing practices and hand hygiene.
“Let us continue to observe proper social distancing kung maglabas kayo. Iyong distance magpalayo ka lang… Frequent handwashing. Kung wala, ito alcohol, mura lang man ito — or you know, come to think of it really, maghugas ka lang ng kamay ‘yung sabon,” he said.
