Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 03, 2020

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte took to the airwaves with a chilling warning for his citizens: Defy the lockdown orders again and the police will shoot you dead. "I will not hesitate. My orders are to the police and military, as well as village officials, if there is any trouble, or occasions where there's violence and your lives are in danger, shoot them dead," he said in a mix of Filipino and English in the televised address. "Do not intimidate the government. Do not challenge the government. You will lose."

This is an example of why we cant let Trump declare a national shutdown.

He'd see to it that summary executions took place.

Shoot then dead is Duerte's answer to pretty much everything. Who would of imagined that Ferdinand and Imelda were actually quite liberal.

Well... at least we now know why Manilla is not a favorite tax shelter for corporations.

I am in the Manila Philippines now and what he said if the police is seriously threatened shot them dead.

I am originally from NYC area and that is a --------. Why the ---- are the parks open and the playgrounds where just closed. The governor is stupid and for some reason is now a rock star. He acted too late and was so obvious. Need to act fast and he was slow shutting down. And the mayor of NYC is even more also dangerous. Week before they shut down the governor said 40% to 60% of people will catch this virus. So why the ---- did he not shut down right away!!!

The Philippines is in a third week of a serious lock down that the Filipinos are taking very seriously. The result 136 dead and they are doing contact tracing. Can't leave your neighborhood. In each household only one person is allowed to leave once a day only to get food and that person has a quarantine id.

The goal in the Philippines is to eradicate the virus in the country and most likely that will be done.

So say stupid comments like the ones above but good luck with the virus where you live!

But Danni is correct is she not? I mean Florida gets 100% of what it asks for while MI and NY get a tiny fraction. Isn't that what the lack of action on Trump's part is doing already?

Better prevent all future flights into the Philippines. Forever.

This virus is too out of control to contain.

This will end when there is herd immunity. Meaning. Pretty much everyone has it. Everyone, everywhere.

Like the common cold and flu virus.

That's not really necessary.
Simply quarantine people who test positive when they land.
Barring a test, simply quarantine all people when they land.

Perhaps concentrate them, in camps.

Whatever. COVID19 isn't going anywhere.

Trump has made sure it will spread across America and kill 20% of the population.

#7 Why are parks open yet playgrounds closed, pretty simple.

Parks are open spaces, play grounds are close proximity with kids touching and climbing and coughing all over everything.
Pretty simple.

Only Filipinos are allowed to enter the country and they have to be put into quarantine.

They have hotels setup for quarantine that they are sent to and are brought there right after they land. Two weeks in the hotel and then they are tracked and followed up with and told not to move from the place they stay in.

There also has not been domestic flights for the past three weeks.

They plan on keeping that up, forever?

Good luck.

Yes they will keep it up ... the government is now debating next steps. Will be slow opening up. Very careful.

Filipinos are paranoid when it comes to ---- like this! They can't afford to have it run wild. Less development medical system then USA and see what is going on there.

They also value life over money.
