Hundreds of joggers ignore coronavirus quarantine in the Philippines

Footage shows youngsters flouting the coronavirus quarantine by jogging and playing sports in public in the Philippines.

Teenagers and adults flocked to the CCP complex in Pasay City on Sunday (June 28) to get some exercise and play badminton.

The area was a usual spot for such activities before the pandemic, but the Covid-19 guidelines being imposed in the region state that minors are still not yet allowed to go out of the house.

Onlooker Berth de Leon said he was saddened after seeing so many people who did not seem to care about spreading the virus.

He said: "They are not even following proper social distancing rules.

Some are not wearing masks and most of them are apparently minors." The Philippines has the fastest-growing number of new COVID-19 cases among over 20 countries and territories in Western Pacific Region, based on the data of World Health Organization since June 16.

The number of Covid-19 cases in the Philippines passed 35,000 on Sunday (June 28) after the Department of Health (DOH) reported 653 more infections–485 “fresh” or newly validated and 168 reported bringing the total to 35,455.
