Manila corona Virus Feb 13

Not a lot to report yesterday.  Continued to grind and earn.

This morning CNN Philippines had a article.

59 people caught it from 3 Chinese locally so far.

over 400 in quarrantine

local gov official now says this:

"Kapag ang bansa nagkaroon na ng local transmission katulad ng Singapore nagshishift. Kapag ncov ka, sa bahay ka na lang, inaadmit na lang severe cases hindi na lahat tinetest. Ang tinetest mo na lang talagang high risk," he explained.
[Translation: If a local transmission occurs in the country, just like Singapore, this means a shift. If you have COVID-19, just stay at home and we will admit only the severe cases and not everyone will be tested. We will only test those at high-risk.]

My sister in law in quarantine in Macau is posting on Facebook, pictures of her running around Macau despite the quarantine.

Photos of her on a empty bus, bragging how it is like she owns the bus cuz she is the only passenger.  Photos of her in Church with others and masks partially removed.  Her Filipino friends back in the Philippines egging her on with comments saying how she is so cool and lucky.

the Philippines has basically ended the mutual defense treaty.  All because the Filipino president read something that Senator Dick Durban made some remarks about a Filipino Senator held without trial for 2 years now. So the Phils gov, badded Dick Durban for life from the Philippines.

Why Two Dem Senators Have Been Banned From the Philippines

Dec 27, 2019Democratic Sens. Patrick Leahy and Dick Durbin have been banned from visiting the Philippines over a measure that aims to punish Philippine officials involved in the jailing of a government critic.

Then the US State dept revoked the tourist visa of Dutertes henchman

Bato confirms his US visa has been canceled - UNTV News ...

Senator Ronald 'Bato' Dela Rosa. Senator Ronald "Bato" dela Rosa confirmed on Wednesday (January 22) that the United States (US) has cancelled his visa. Dela Rosa said he was informed about the cancellation of his visa when he made an inquiry about his visa status on Monday (January 20).

So then in response he cancels the VFA.

I guess the hospital ships will not visit the Philippines during the pandemic.

Update, the  native tribes getting restless. 

BAGUIO CITY –– The popular tourist town of Sagada in Mountain province has temporarily shut its doors on visitors as a precautionary measure against coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Sagada Mayor James Pooten Jr. on Thursday ordered the suspension of eco-tourism activities within the municipality “until further notice.”
Pooten said he consulted the community about the suspension, which is in response to the growing concern over the outbreak of COVID-19.
He said the town has started implementing prevention and control measures to protect the health of its residents.
Sagada is frequented by tourists because of its burial caves, landscapes, and indigenous culture.
