14 Bikers Allegedly Violated Health Protocols in Davao City Apprehended
Local authorities arrested fourteen (14) bikers after they were caught violating COVID-19 minimum health protocols in Davao City.
On Sunday, police in Davao City’s Barangay Tamugan apprehended 14 people while on patrol. The Marilog Police Station said that 14 bikers, including eight kids, were gathered beside the Tamugan River when they were apprehended.
The bikers were allegedly not physically separated and did not wear face masks. Police also seized an almost empty bottle of alcohol that allegedly belonged to one of the inmates.
One of them, according to Marilog police chief Capt. Dave Uddin, consumed alcohol. The six are already in the Marilog Police Station’s custody, while the eight youngsters have been returned to their families.
At the liquor ban, six people are expected to be charged with breaking Republic Act No. 11332, the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Health Concern Act.
Meanwhile, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) criticizes a procession in General Trias, Cavite, where participants disobeyed COVID-19 health rules. People may be seen walking and dancing in the rain on Arnaldo Highway in Barangay Santiago in the video.
During a holiday in Cavite, people take part in the nautilus, a traditional religious procession. A barangay chairperson was also present at the gathering. Some of the participants in the video are seen clinging together without wearing a face mask. From the 16th to the end of the month, Cavite is one of the places under General Community Quarantine.
The DILG considers this a major infraction. According to Mayor Antonio Ferrer, the meeting was held without the municipality’s consent. He further stated that the procession had nothing to do with the parish and that it was not approved.
