The president of the Philippines is continuing threats against those who are not willing to vaccinate and said that he doesn’t care if people die from the virus. He also said police may restrict their movements, having previously threatened to jail them.
The president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte said he doesn’t care if people who do not wish to vaccinate against the coronavirus vaccine die from the virus.
Rodrigo Duterte told a national address on Wednesday: “For those who do not want it, well, for all I care, you can die anytime.”
He also said he wants the police to restrict the movement of people who refuse coronavirus vaccines.
“For those people who don’t want to be vaccinated, I tell you, don’t leave your houses, because if you leave your houses, I will tell the police to return you to your homes. You will be escorted back to your house because you are a walking spreader,” Duterte told a national address.
Only 6% of the country is vaccinated, according to Reuters. Duterte previously threatened to jail people who refuse to get a coronavirus vaccine.
