Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened people who refuse to be vaccinated against coronavirus infection that they can be arrested, AP reported.
“Don’t get me wrong. There is a crisis being faced in this country. There is a national emergency. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, I’ll have you arrested and I’ll inject the vaccine in your butt,” Duterte said.
According to Duterte, citizens who do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 are only exacerbating the situation.
“If you will not agree to be vaccinated, leave the Philippines. Go to India if you want or somewhere, to America,” he said, adding he would order village leaders to compile a list of defiant residents.
