Duterte to unvaxxed: ‘Pag namatay kayo, good riddance!
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte has a message to individuals who still refuse to get vaccinated against Covid-19: “Good riddance.”
Duterte made the statement during his taped public address late Monday as he reminded the Filipino people of the continuing threat of the virus.
“Ilang beses I have to say the statement of course with a warning that sa sitwasyon ngayon, we are not over the hump. Hindi pa tayo magsabi na wala na because the microbes are still in the air,” according to the President.
“I am warning you. ‘Wag kayo magkumpiyansa. Pag namatay kayo at di kayo bakunado, sabihin ko sa iyo, good riddance. E gusto niyo mamatay, e di sige,” he added.
Duterte also said that while the chances of dying with Omicron variant is “nil,” infection with the more deadly Delta strain remains possible.
