How Many Would Volunteer to take the Coronavirus Vaccine?
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte accepts an offer for a pending Russian coronavirus vaccine. This is once supply becomes available. He said this soon after discussing a similar deal with China. He hopes that they would be for free but it’s unlikely. However, Senator Imee Marcos has another concern. The Philippines is not the epicenter of Coronavirus in South East Asia alone. According to the UN, the country is also the epicenter of child pornography. A vaccine is not needed here but a stricter implementation of the law.
Child Pornography Law
Senator Marcos confirms that the Child Pornography Law requires TELCOs like Globe and PLDT to filter porn online like any other social media platforms. However, they seem so lax in this area. The government must put pressure on NTC to implement the rules and regulations as requirements to continue operating.
Are Filipinos Too Sexual?
Reports say that due to the lockdown, around 2 million babies are about to be born next year. Then, here comes the identity of being the epicenter of child pornography. The crisis seem to trigger some Filipinos’ sexual attribute. No vaccine can remedy this but perhaps, the nations’ psychiatrists are now more in demand than ever.
