Filipino president threatens jail to those who refuse coronavirus vaccine

 MANILA:Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to jail anyone who refuses to be vaccinated for the coronavirus as the nation battles one of Asia's worst outbreaks. 

Duterte made the comments Monday following reports of low turnouts at vaccination sites in the capital Manila, according to The Straits Times. 

"You choose, vaccine, or I will have you jailed," Duterte said during a televised program. 

 

 "Don't get me wrong, there is a crisis in this country," said Duterte. "I'm just exasperated by Filipinos not heeding the government," he added. 

While 1.3 million COVID-19 cases have been recorded to date, 23,749 Filipinos have died from the virus. 

As of June 20, approximately 2.1 million people in the country with a population of 110 million have received both doses of a vaccine.
