MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte lectured the public on the importance of wearing face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the country. Duterte also said that violations of the mandatory wearing of face masks in public places and the observance of physical distancing can be considered a “serious crime” given that the country is seeing an outbreak of infections. “Maski gamitin mo siguro ‘yan ng dalawang beses okay man, kung isprayhan mo ng alcohol pagtapos, wag ‘yun iniispray mo tapos suot agad,” President Duterte said in an address to the public on Tuesday. “We have to ask our police to be more strict, hulihin talaga. A little shame would put them on notice forever,” Duterte said. “Sino ba naman gustong mahuli ka? But if you are brought to the police station and detained there, that would give you a lesson for all time.” Based on the latest data from the Department of Health, there were reported 1,521 new confirmed cases of the COVID-19 in the country, bringing the country’s total to 68,898./PN The WHO added that medical masks should be discarded immediately after use and preferably thrown in a closed bin. Duterte’s statement run counter with the World Health Organization, which has said before that only non-medical fabric masks can be reused but these should be washed with water and detergent. Duterte, in a taped address aired Tuesday morning, claimed masks can be used for up to two times as long as these are sprayed with a disinfectant.
Newcastle have appealed against the sending off which is set to keep Loic Remy out of Saturday’s derby clash with Sunderland. The 27-year-old Frenchman was dismissed along with Norwich’s Bradley Johnson in Tuesday night’s Barclays Premier League 0-0 draw at Carrow Road. Referee Chris Foy showed the red cards after the pair clashed following an untidy tussle. A club spokesman said: “Newcastle United can confirm that the club has lodged an appeal with the Football Association for the wrongful dismissal of Loic Remy during Tuesday’s Barclays Premier League fixture with Norwich City at Carrow Road. “Remy was given a straight red card by referee Chris Foy in the 81st minute of the game following an incident involving Norwich City’s Bradley Johnson.” Norwich announced on Wednesday that they too would appeal against Johnson’s dismissal. Should Remy fail in his appeal, he will miss the league games against Sunderland, Chelsea and Tottenham. Press Association
