Duterte made the statement after someone, who he did not identify, said that he/she wanted vaccines made in the United States to be shipped in the country.“Sabi ko ‘wag kayong mamili. Ngayon, mayroon na namang gustong—ayaw magpa-deliver ng iba kung hindi Pfizer pati Moderna. Sinasabi ko sa iyo, kung hindi totoo ‘yang mga bakuna na itong sa Sinovac pati Sinopharm, ito ‘yung unang nagdating, e ‘di marami nang patay,” he told the public.

(I said, do not choose. Now, someone does not want to deliver other brands. What he/she wants is Pfizer or Moderna. I’m telling you if vaccines like Sinovac and Sinopharm are not effective, many people should have died.)“If they are not effective, they are not good, bakit ngayon halos wala nang patay (Why are deaths lesser)? And yet you continue to mingle, ignoring the rule of distancing at every opportunity,” Duterte went on. headtopics.com
