Ruffy Biazon questions timing of reopening of cinemas, parks


Ruffy Biazon found the latest decision of the Inter-Agency Task Force to reopen more commercial spaces problematic as cases are on the rise.

The Muntinlupa congressman said the decision to reopen movie theaters, parks, and similar leisure establishments appears untimely 11 months into the local quarantine rules.

“Certain businesses allowed to open soon. Is there a master plan showing which businesses will be allowed to open under specified circumstances/time frame or is this an on the spot decision?,” the politiko said. “Shouldn’t the decision to open certain businesses synchronize with a vaccination plan of sectors involved in the opening of those businesses?”

COVID-19 vaccination is yet to take off in the country, even as neighboring Asian states are well into injecting the shots on the arm of their residents.
