The ban on karaoke might make all this virus biz worthwhile

Metromanila is gearing up for stricter measures.  Back to a need for quarantine pass one per family cars follow an odd even code for permitted travel days stricter curfews no going out of your residence without special reason.  Doesnt seem to take effect until some 10 days from now.  Need to give people time to catch the delta variant before forcing them to stay inside together.  No talk about vax passes.

From Reuters

MANILA, July 29 (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered his government on Wednesday to open the coronavirus vaccination campaign to anyone who wants a shot as his country scrambles to protect the population from more transmissible variants.

With only 6% of the Philippines' 110 million people fully vaccinated against COVID-19, millions remain vulnerable to infection. The government is aiming to fully immunise up to 70 million people before the year ends.

"Give the vaccines to those who want to be vaccinated," Duterte said in a late-night address, expressing concern over the contagious Delta variant, which is ripping through Southeast Asia, now a global epicentre for the virus.

It was not immediately clear if his directive meant that the vaccines could now be given to Filipinos not included in the government's priority groups.

Given limited supplies, it is prioritising healthcare workers, elderly, people with existing medical conditions and working age adults.

The country has so far reported 119 cases of the Delta variant, first detected in India, but health experts say there could be more undetected cases because of the slow pace of the country's genome sequencing capacity.

Daily reported infections have recently started to rise, and authorities this week suspended travel from Malaysia and Thailand, as well as tightened curbs in and around Manila.

Duterte ordered village chiefs to prevent those in their communities who refuse to be vaccinated from leaving home.

"I am telling you, don't leave your homes. If you go out, I will tell the police to escort you back to your house because you are a walking spreader," Duterte said. "If you don't want to help the country by getting vaccinated, then better stay in your homes."

With more than 1.5 million coronavirus cases and more than 27,000 deaths, the Philippines has the second-worst outbreak in Southeast Asia after Indonesia.

That is not good.  And the Delta variant has only started spreading.

The Delta version is not the biggest problem. More worrisome is the low percentage of vaccinated people in this country. I just read as per July 25th only about 6 mio got their second jab. Not really impressive.

Vaccines have only 6 months protection efficasy, even Pfizer. They are recomending 3rd booster shots.

What I read was that the efficacy drops to 83% with Pfizer after 6 months for protection against acquiring the virus but still in the 90 percentile for avoiding serious illness or death.

And yes, we have booster shots for most viruses

Very alarming that Chan is acting like a dictator.  He is using psychological warfare on his constituents.  Does self determination and free will have no meaning to this mayor?
