He has said that those who are refusing to get the vaccine, they will be sent to jail. A new wave of Corona has knocked in the Philippines. The outbreak of Delta variants continues in the country. The borders of the country have been kept on high alert. Instead of appealing to the people to get the vaccine, the government is threatening them.
'Get vaccinated or go to jail'
On Monday, Duterte said, 'Either you get the vaccine or you will be sent to jail.' In fact, the vaccination campaign started in the Philippines in March. It is being said that people are hesitant to get the vaccine, that is why the number of vaccinations in the country is low. According to media reports, people are getting the Pfizer vaccine after a lot of hard work.
The President is angry because of those who do not get the vaccine. He said that he would get such people vaccinated against pigs. However, this is not the first time Duterte has made such a controversial statement. Even before this, he has ordered to shoot the violators of the lockdown, after which several incidents of alleged shootings were also reported.

In the past also Duterte has come into the limelight due to his statements. He threatened America and said that if America does not give Corona vaccine, then he will cancel the military agreement. He had said that if he did not give the vaccine, he could cancel the visiting forces agreement. Not only this, he had said that people can make their face masks infection free with petrol.
