From AFP The Philippines: In the scorching heat and humidity, 31-year-old Caitlin Tojans has been rumored to be wearing a face mask while waiting in line for a bus in the capital Manila.
“It simply came to our notice then. Joining the long queue means we are already tired and will work up a sweat bath, ”said Toznes, whose journey involves three buses and takes several hours.
However, he has resigned in a new general post in the Philippines, where wearing masks and plastic gloves is now mandatory in both indoor public spaces and public transport to prevent the spread of carnivirus.
“With Kovid, it’s up to the people to maintain order,” said Tojans, who works as a store manager in the country’s nearly 120-meter-wide capital where most of the country’s infections have been recorded.
“The full burden of the people should not be placed on the government. We must practice self-discipline. ”
The latest move comes as the country struggles to control the spread of the virus, with Southeast Asia recording the highest number of confirmed cases with more than 263,000 infections and more than 4,900 deaths.
Six months after stricter restrictions were introduced on infectious control – including home stays, travel bans and no conversations on buses and trains – the infection is still growing by the thousands every day.
Some measures have been simplified to help kick-start a devastated economy.
Jeff Langurayan, 31, said: “It’s a great adjustment to wear masks and facial ields and wash your hands with alcohol.
However, he accepted the need for caution.
“A lot of people have died and you don’t know what will hurt you and what effect it will have on your body.”
