Have sighted a few people having difficulty walking a fair distance with two bags of groceries. Trikes are off in the transport ban and the Palace yesterday confirmed the reason was because social distancing cannot be maintained. You would think that they could allow it for one passenger at the very least.

Then, there's a rule that only one person from each household to be getting the shopping. Supposedly to be enforced by the Barangay! If followed people will be making more shopping trips.

I bet they wished they had bought London taxis

Police have just been round to advise that as of this evening there is a curfew from 20:00 to 05:00hrs. Won't bother most in the village as they are normally in bed by that time.

Fillet of a fenny snake, in the caldron boil and bake. Eye of newt, and toe of frog, wool of bat, and tongue of dog. Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting. Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing.

Double, double, toil and trouble. Fire, burn, and caldron, bubble.

Curfews are unnecessary as everything is closed and there are so many uniformed people around on the deserted streets to persuade any people who are out without good reason to go home. But a few years ago a national "strongman" type leader was elected so especially at times like this no relying on persuasion to be any part of the restrictions.

Those in local government have to follow the tough inflexible line coming from the top. From people who have little idea how most people live here. Very few are speaking out. Vico Sotto with his sensible trike proposal had to bow down in the end to the argument from the Palace that if his idea was allowed then there would not be a uniform rule!

On Rappler today there's a report of a homeless Lola arrested for just shouting at Tanods during the curfew in Malate. MM.

Very early days now...but unless there is more help and flexibility in dealing with the poor I think there will be serious unrest in many areas before long.

A few days ago the US state department advised all US citizens to leave metro Manila and cebu due to possible civil unrest..

After natural disasters in the Philippines, is there normally much looting?

Could be some tough times ahead for sure. Widespread economic collapse, profiteering, highly leveraged businesses going under, mass unemployment...... All kinds of possibilities.

What is the capability of the government to intervene and help. I'm guessing not in the same way as European governments are right now.

There is no related link on the US Embassy, Philippines. They just advise all US citizens globally to return to the US.

There is nothing like this on the State Department Travel Alerts for the Philippines. In fact on their advisory regarding Manila they just say follow the instructions of the Philippines government and Health Authorities.
