At last, a Mayor with a sensible policy on local transport. Let's see if she provides cover for others who may have been scared of repercussions to follow.

A good thing to do. And at the next Presidential Election it will help to distance her from her father and his bloc in case the COVID-19 fight doesn't go well here.

Will need to go to the main town 25km away some time in the next ten days or so to top up the beer tokens and buy a few essentials. So off to the barangay hall to find out what I need to do to get there & back. No problem, they will fix everything ( for no fee ), travel pass, quarantine pass, medical cert etc. all I need to do is go in and sign the papers. All well and good for me but how many infected people have managed to get the same paperwork the same way and are now traveling back and forth.

I know this virus is a different beast but to put things in perspective, last year the Philippines had over 400,000 people infected with Dengue Fever and over 1,500 died and not much effort was put into preventing that, most likely because it is a problem of the poor and not the rich.

Over 70 TB deaths a day here according to WHO Philippines....one of the worst rates in the world. And this COVID-19 outbreak will badly affect treatment.

They don't do the word "pre-empt",hence they will not care or think much about it until it is at their door..Then when it is through their door,in their homes and ravaging them,they will keep telling themselves every day that tomorrow it will be gone.....and then,when it is finally gone,after it has killed tens of thousands of people,they will say that "God is Good" and Covid-19 happened for a reason.

They will always "Find A Way" to get through it all.

The lockdown is a very blunt instrument and it's restricted or stranded even many people who want to travel for good reasons not falling under employment, business travel. We are a case in point with a property we really need to visit outside Manila. However, I can understand the advantage of not having too many exceptions to make life easier for those manning the busy checkpoints and not to encourage unnecessary social travel by others. But I think in many provincial locations, where knowledge of local people is greater, Barangay offices less busy, trips could be allowed at no risk to further virus spread after careful assessment of the circumstances.

I think it's especially important to allow some flexibility so as to maintain public support if, as seems likely, these lockdowns, in whatever form, are going to continue for many more weeks.

Longest line I have seen so far at Palawan this morning. A 2-3 hour wait if you're not a Senior. About a week ago it was reported that only about 10% of government cash aid to poor families had been given out..

In society here there's more respect for Seniors than in the UK and it starts at 60. So there are moire privileges and discounts. Helped by the fact that Seniors make up a much smaller percentage of the population. I often don't avail of these, but won't turn down avoiding the long waits one has to face here now.

Older people are far more likely to die if they get this virus, limiting the amount of time they need to spend in queues makes perfect sense. It's also not too much to ask that younger people show some courtesy and compassion to seniors who are less able to stand for hours.

Interesting modelling of the provincial outlook, the majority of them in North and Central Luzon.
