Because of this, President Rodrigo Duterte imposed a community Quarantine in Metro Manila. Along with this, places like Bacolod City in Negros Occidental also followed.

A day after the community quarantine was announced, motorists are required to pass-through checkpoints for thermal scans.

However, one motorist showed a temperature of 38 Degrees Celcius. The motorist was checked by two people to confirm his temperature.

He was then asked by an official if he was feeling well. The motorist said he was fine. But, afterward, he explained that he took shots of Vodka to fight off the virus.

“Nag tagay ako, mga tatlong shot ng vodka”.

Following this, a police officer told him that the alcohol level of motorists should be .01% or negative. The officer then said that what he was doing was against the law.

According to ABS-CBN, the motorist was given a ticket for driving under the influence of alcohol. See the full video below:
