Covid restrictions will remain in Philippines through holiday seasonMANILA, Philippines — Coronavirus quarantine restrictions will remain imposed in the Philippine capital during the Christmas season this month and officials said they will ban big Christmas parties in Asia’s largest Roman Catholic nation to prevent new infection spikes. The restrictions ban large public gatherings, actual school classes and entertainment businesses but allow shopping malls, restaurants and essential shops, including barber shops, to operate with required safeguards, including the wearing of face masks and shields and social distancing. Duterte lamented that many still defy quarantine restrictions like the wearing of face masks and warned of a possible resurgence of infections like in some Western countries. “In the Philippines, it’s hard-headedness," Duterte said. The Philippines has reported more than 431,600 confirmed coronavirus infections, the second-highest in Southeast Asia, with at least 8,392 deaths.

MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday said that partial coronavirus restrictions will remain in the capital region until the end of the year, with the government urging Filipinos to limit Christmas gatherings to prevent a post-holiday surge in COVID-19 cases. In the Philippines, cases continued to rise after restrictions were relaxed, which he said was necessary because people needed to earn a living. Health Secretary Francisco Duque asked Filipinos to limit Christmas gatherings to immediate family members as he warned against complacency and ignoring health standards. The Philippines, which ranks 44th in terms of active COVID-19 cases worldwide, clinched its first supply deal for a coronavirus vaccine last week, securing 2.6 million shots of a potential vaccine developed by AstraZeneca. Five vaccine makers, including AstraZeneca, have applied to hold late-stage trials in the Philippines.

The Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Romualdez said Pfizer had assured supply of its vaccine to his country once approved for distribution. Moderna Inc is expected to be the next company to seek a U.S. emergency use nod for a COVID-19 vaccine after similarly encouraging results of late-stage trials. President Rodrigo Duterte has ended the overseas travel ban for Philippine health workers, the labour minister said on Saturday, renewing the hopes of workers, although only 5,000 will be allowed to leave each year.

MANILA (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has approved ending a ban on deploying the nation’s healthcare workers, his labour minister said on Saturday, clearing the way for thousands of nurses to take up jobs overseas. Slideshow ( 2 images )“The president already approved the lifting of the temporary suspension of deployment of nurses and other medical workers,” Labour Secretary Silvestre Bello told Reuters. To ensure the Philippines has enough medical professionals to continue to fight the pandemic at home, only 5,000 healthcare workers will be allowed to leave every year, Bello said. “We are starting only with a cap of 5,000 so we will not run out (of medical workers), but this may increase eventually,” Bello said. The government in April barred nurses, doctors and other medical workers from leaving, saying they were needed to fight the coronavirus crisis at home.

Tweets from the White House National Security Council said O’Brien would meet leaders in both countries “to reaffirm the strength of our bilateral relationships and to discuss regional security cooperation.”O’Brien’s trip follows a visit to Hanoi last month by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Washington also has concerns about human rights in the Philippines, where President Rodrigo Duterte has been engaged in a war on drugs in which thousands of urban poor have been killed, many in mysterious circumstances. On a visit last year, Pompeo assured the Philippines that Washington would come to its defense if it came under attack in the South China Sea, where Manila has competing claims with China and other countries, including Vietnam.

Philippine journalist gunned down, four years after assassination attempt

MANILA (Reuters) - Two gunmen on a motorcycle shot dead a radio journalist outside his home in the Philippines on Tuesday, police said, four years after the broadcaster survived a near-identical assassination attempt. The Presidential Task Force on Media Security described the killing as “an act of cowardice” and vowed to hunt down those responsible. Maganes had survived the previous attempt on his life in November 2016 by playing dead. Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said both his murder and the 2016 attack would be investigated to establish whether they were linked to his work as a journalist. President Rodrigo Duterte made creating the media security task force a priority on taking office in 2016, but his critics say press freedom has deteriorated on his watch.
