The President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duerte, has ordered the army to shoot anyone who disobeys the ongoing lockdown in the country due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The 57 million residents of the country’s main island, Luzon, are under strict lockdown orders to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Despite that, many in a Manila slum took to the streets on Wednesday to protest a lack of supplies, arguing they had not received any food packs since the lockdown started two weeks ago.
Later that night, the president took to the airwaves to warn his citizens about disobeying again.
“I will not hesitate. My orders are to the police and military, as well as village officials, if there is any trouble, or occasions where there’s violence and your lives are in danger, shoot them dead,” he said.
“Do not intimidate the government. Do not challenge the government. You will lose.”
