Duterte orders the immediate arrests of Filipinos wearing facemasks improperly

Husband accuses Catholic priest of “coveting” the man’s wife in a viral video

The management of Philippines Plus today made a decision to take the high road. Of course, the only manager at PPlus HQ is yours truly, “The Kano.” Today’s post was going to focus on President Duterte’s new marching orders to the Philippine National Police. El Presidente is ordering the immediate arrest of anyone not wearing their facemasks properly. Furthermore, the Top Taco wants the scofflaws interrogated as to why they’re not wearing their mask in the proper manner.

In addition, I was going to mention the case of an Pampanga priest who is being accused of adultery. The cleric was berated by the alleged adulteress’ asawa in a five-minute viral video.

The husband said he wasn’t going to harm the priest physically but just wanted to expose the philandering friar.

The following photo, taken by Captain Tom several years, ago is some gratuitous “eye candy.”

This is a prime example of what we could be publishing if we weren’t taking the “high road” today.

The “eye candy,” of course, are the two young ladies in the foreground. Forget that guy sitting in the background.

Pretty pinays

The Archdiocese of San Fernando has since removed the padre from his priestly post.

However, we’re taking the high road today and focusing on the positive. While “bad news travels like wildfire and good news travel slow,” we’re not going to cheapen ourselves and dwell on some scandal.

Moreover, we’re going to skip over the details of President Duterte’s new edict on the improper wearing of facemasks. The President, without a facemask, addressed his Cabinet members, all wearing facemasks, this past Wednesday evening. Duterte wanted his new facemask edict to go into effect immediately.

Officials scurried faster than a cockroach in a kitchen with the lights turned on to start enforcing the new orders.  Never mind the overcrowded jail cells and social distancing violations that might result in this latest crackdown of one of the longest and strictest lockdowns in the world.

However, again, we’re taking the high road at Philippines Plus.


Vaccine czar, General, Carlito Galvez Jr., promises that in May, the Philippines will receive 1 to 2 million doses of AstraZeneca. Pfizer vaccines will deliver 1.3 million doses in May, also. We assume Galvez is talking about May 2021 and not 2022, or 2023.

The Philippine government has already received over 4 million vaccine doses. The majority of which are China’s Sinovac vaccine. (We could say something about the low efficacy of the Chinese vaccine but we’re taking the high road today.)

The government targets to immunize up to 70 million individuals by the end of the year to achieve herd immunity.

Furthermore, almost one million Filipinos have recovered from the coronavirus.

Daily COVID-19 cases have dropped from 12,000-15,000 a day to 5,000 to 6,000 a day.

I’m about ready to burst into a round of “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah” with all this good news while skipping along on today’s high road.
