Pres Duterte to pay for food and accommodation of locally stranded individuals


President Rodrigo Duterte has just ordered the Interior Secretary Eduardo Ano to gather locally stranded individuals in Manila, adding that he will pay for food and accommodation for them. 

The statement was made during a press briefing tonight in Malacanang. 

Today, Malacanang also announced the suspension of entry of LSis in several regions.

“Para malinaw po, ang naaprubahan po ngayong hapon pa lamang ay ang moratorium sa pagpapauwi ng locally stranded individuals sa mga lugar,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in an online briefing. 

As approved by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Managing of Emerging Infectious Diseases, the following are the areas that have a moratorium on the entry of LSIs:

-Cebu Island


-Region VIII


On June 28, about a hundred of LSIs were spotted getting soaked in the rain outside the Northport Terminal in Tondo Manila as they waited for their delayed ferry trips bound to Zamboanga.
