Old Man Receives Punishment for Working Amid Enhanced Community Quarantine in Luzon
The police authorities punished an old man who continues to work to earn money for his family amid the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.
Last week, President Rodrigo Duterte declared the Philippines under a state of calamity due to the rampant spread of coronavirus disease. He also placed the entire Luzon under an enhanced community quarantine.
The new measure restricts mass gatherings, mass transport, and the movement of the residents to contain the spread of the deadly virus. The lockdown protocols also prohibit the senior citizens and students to go in public places.
Recently, the Facebook page “ABS-CBN News” has shared the photo of an old man being punished by the authorities for defying the lockdown protocols. The photo garnered various reactions from the online community.
The old man identified as Mang Arturo Lostreno has been punished after offering car tint services in Banawe, Quezon City despite the implementation of enhanced quarantine measures. He admitted that it was wrong but he needs to earn money to buy food for his family.
Mang Arturo together with 30 other guys has been detained at Barangay Tatalon’s covered court for three hours as their punishment for their violation.
The social media users expressed their reactions to the photo:
