Public display of affection not allowed to stop surge in COVID-19 cases, PNP says



The Philippine National Police (PNP) has recently announced that public display of affection among loved ones will not be allowed in public places to stem the surging COVID-19 cases in the country.


According to PNP Chief Debold Sinas  on Wednesday (March 10), all police units were already instructed to intervene or call out those who will be seen engaging in physical intimacy such as holding hands, kissing, and hugging as these violate the physical distancing protocol.


“Papaigtingin lang natin kasi nga part of the IATF at mga locals are already alarmed again kasi medyo tumaas. So PDA, ‘yung hawak-hawak sisitahin na rin ‘yan. Dati naman sinisita ‘yan pero ngayon kasi medyo nagluwag tayo but ipagpapatuloy natin ‘yan,” said Sinas during an interview in Camp Crame.


Meanwhile, PNP spokesman Police Brigadier General Ildebrandi Usana reminded the people to "maintain being cautious from the spread of the virus" especially now that the new COVID-19 cases in the country is surging.


As of writing, the total number of COVID-19 cases in the country have also climbed to 607,048 with 47, 769 active cases. Reports say that the spread of infection became more prevalent as some places or establishments lifted their COVID-19 restrictions.
