We are not being racist but Chinese immigrants have grown to millions since the president took over back in 2016. Now those occupying apartments/condominiums in the South of Metro Manila are Chinese, depriving some Filipinos of affordable places to live in. I read in some reports that they pay double or triple the amount that is supposed to be paid and they pay in advance. A very lucrative business to those Filipinos who grab the chance to earn more.  Come to think of it, they have constructed housing facilities too. The president welcomes them with open arms.

What are best friends for anyway? Duterte said that it is unfair to impose travel ban considering the closeness of the two nations. It behooves me to understand that China is far greater important to him than his own people who he promised to serve when he got elected. 16M die-hard duterte followers.

We have POGO now (Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators) owned and managed by the Chinese. Lately, there are  prostitution dens being patronized by these people. They come in without visa, and the Philippines issues visa right there and then upon arrival.

Now we have our first case of the coronavirus. A Chinese woman who came from Huwan, passed by Hong Kong, landed in Cebu City then went to Manila. Now she is confined at  San Lazaro Hospital, a public hospital for communicable diseases which is so close to the university belt. I fear for those small kids who have to commute to and from school exposing them to the danger of the virus.

Finally, they have to wait that one gets infected before issuing travel ban but according to reports it is only confined to Huwan province but reports also say that the virus is now all over china.Oh,I guess issuing a travel ban now is moot because China has lockdown. Too late the hero, that’s how uncaring our government is.

We don’t have those  modern facilities to address this just like other nations so we must really be wary of the happenings here. No enough training even for health personnel to handle it. And the “good” secretary of health seems to be just following orders from his boss.

Philippines, I ask this once more, where are we going?
