MANILA, Philippines – Nagbabala si Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso na papanagutin ang mga magulang ng mga batang mahuhuling lumalabag sa mga ordinansa ng lungsod gaya ng curfew at pagsusuot ng face mask sa gitna ng coronavirus crisis.

Ayon kay Domagoso, inatasan na niya ang Manila Police District (MPD) at Manila Social Welfare Department na hulihin at ikulong ang mga magulang ng mga menor de edad na hindi sumusunod sa mga nabanggit na ordinansa.

Ang hakbang ay kasunod ng mga ulat ng mga batang inaabutan ng mga otoridad sa kalsada kahit dis-oras na ng gabi at wala pang suot na face mask.

Sa datos ng MPD mula Marso 15 hanggang Hulyo 13, nasa 1,039 na ang nahuling lumabag sa Ordinance No. 8644 o ang Mandatory Use of Face Mask in the Public.

Nasa 9,367 naman ang nadakip dahil sa paglabag sa Curfew Ordinance. Karamihan sa mga nahuling pagala-gala sa kalsada sa oras ng curfew ay mga menor de edad.

“Kaya ngayon ang focus ng manila police district sa implementation ng curfew ordinance natin pati yung magulang kakasuhan natin yung mga pabayang magulang,” ani Police Brigadier General Rolando Miranda, MPD director.

Sa ilalim ng City Ordinance No. 8243 o ang Anti-Child Endangerment Ordinance, maaaring maharap sa multang P5,000 o kaya ay hanggang anim na buwang pagkakakulong ang isang magulang na napatunayang nagpabaya sa kanyang anak na may edad na 12 taong gulang pababa.

Multang P3,000 o kaya’y tatlong buwang pagkakakulong naman para sa mga magulang na nagpabaya sa kanilang mga anak na may edad 13 hanggang 14 taon habang P2,000 naman ang multa o isang buwang pagkakapiit ang parusa sa mga magulang na magpapabaya sa kanilang anak na may edad 15 hanggang 17 taong gulang. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)

Robie de Guzman   •   January 4, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The city government of Manila is preparing for the roll out of its COVID-19 vaccination plan for an initial number of 200,000 residents, Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said Monday.

In a statement, Domagoso said the city government is ready to execute a city-wide vaccine deployment operation once a vaccine has been approved for distribution and usage in the country.

Domagoso is also encouraging his constituents to register in the city’s vaccination portal at

Mayor Isko said that through the launching of the pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine, the local government of Manila would be able to detect those interested having a vaccine.

“Ito yung pamamaraan ng syudad na pagiging maagap na inihahanda na natin kasi modesty aside, the City of Manila reserved already P200M since July and we’ve been talking to multinational pharmaceutical pharmacies even though they are in phase 2 at that time, at yan nagtagumpay yan kasi nagkaroon ng movement,” Domagoso said.

Likewise, the mayor said that non-disclosure agreements have already been signed with two multinational pharmaceutical companies last month.

“Ito yung paghahanda. Ngayon dalhin diyan, mayroon na agad kaming target market, sila na yung mauuna at mas mabilis kasi dahil alam namin na interesado ka, dahil alam namin you signed already the waiver you will be the first in line,” he said.

“Having said that, we will try to reach as many as possible because the first order that we are trying to eye in our own little way is 400,000 dosage that will serve 200,000 Manileños,” he added.

Domagoso assured that the city government will only use vaccines that are approved by the country’s Food and Drug Authority (FDA).
