Hawaii arrests Pinay for breaking quarantine protocols; posts P100,000 bail


A Filipina social media influencer has been arrested in Honolulu, Hawaii for breaking the 14-day mandatory quarantine protocols. 

Mika Salamanca, 20, was seen in public. She arrived in Honolulu from Manila on July 6 and the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) learned that she was out in the public. 

HTA was provided with videos of Salamanca dancing in a store and dining with friends. 

“I admit that I made a mistake at the time when I arrived in Hawaii and we went out right away. I’m sorry,” she said in a series of videos posted on her Twitter account. 

Attorney General Clare E. Connors said, “None of my investigators would convey that information, as it is incorrect. The fact that Ms. Salamanca has so many followers makes her actions that much more dangerous and concerning.  The spread of misinformation can have very severe consequences during an emergency situation like we are in now.”
