Netizens Asks “Bakit Bawal Sa Sementeryo Pero Ok Sa Dolomite Beach?” As All Saints Day Approaches
BAWAL SA SEMENTERYO – Due to the pandemic, families are not allowed to visit cemeteries in fear of spreading COVID-19.
However, last Sunday, thousands upon thousands visited the controversial Dolomite Beach of Manila Bay. Despite the masses of daily visitors allowed to enter, it appears as no social distancing or health protocols are followed, say netizens.
Because of this, authorities said they are formulating new protocols to address the sheer number of visitors. For now, children under 12-years-old are not allowed to visit the beach.
Additionally, officials are eying to close off Dolomite Beach on the weekends. But, authorities are still deliberating on their final decisions.
Meanwhile, netizens on social called out how the government allows people on the dolomite beach but not in cemeteries. One Redditor posted:
Bawal pumunta ng sementeryo, wala pang face to face classes pero at least pwede mag-gather ng ganito sa manila bay #dolomitebeach nice, sanity retrieved 🥂💯
Currently, the Philippines has yet to approve face-to-face classes. Furthermore, the MMDA has closed-off cemeteries to the public starting October 29 until November 2.
Here are some of the comments regarding the post:
Parang mga engot. Pumunta lang sila jan para makipagsiksikan?
Mas fine sand pa yung buhangin sa construction site.
Graba yung nilagay nila hindi sand. Ang lalaki ng tipak kahit malayo/malabo yung video, kitang kita na hindi regaluar size na buhangin yung dolomite, sakit sa paa niyan.
