    "No checkpoints .... I am out"

    Just got back from Dumaguete, there are indeed checkpoints although they are more relaxed than previously. Some ask for a quarantine pass, some take temperature but there are checkpoints at the entrances to the city and at major intersections within the city, just as before.

    May 1st is a magical day here, it is Labor Day.

    BTW has anyone found the virtual $1200 in their bank account yet? Those who get paper checks, which will be signed by our glorious leader including a beautiful letter signed by him.

    I was all ready to help our economy but Amazon won't let me login without a pin that they won't send me. It must be a political thing between Jeff Bezos and our glorious leader. Maybe this will all be sorted out.

    Just in: New Bohol EO issued by Gov Yap.

    Provisions include continued use of quarantine passes and elder ban still in effect but relaxed so that seniors may “break curfew” 6:00am to 6:00pm on T, W and Th.

    Hope he and degamo talk to each other.

    Edit: Add the following from the Bohol EO:

    Minors below 18 allowed to break curfew 6am-6pm on Mondays and Fridays only in the company of at least one parent/guardian who is not a senior citizen.

    That is what it says! Lol

    This post is off topic here. It belongs in one of the stimulus threads or maybe a new one. Check out the article in The Hill which discusses who in government is permitted to sign US Treasury checks so that you are not disappointed when you don’t get the evil orange man’s autograph on your paper check.

    Quarantine for 60+, why?? Really simple: you are most vulnerable for this disease because of the age and probably other, underlying conditions and thus an influx of sick 60+ patients would overrun the local hospital capacity. So, stop moaning and groaning. At least some stranger is looking out for you. Quarantine for -20, why?? Children can catch Covid-19 and although not showing severe signs of illness can and will spread the virus because of the close proximity to other people that need to go out to purchase food items or go to the bank. On top of that, recent information from medical experts in France, England, Spain and Italy indicates that an inordinate number of these children with Covid-19, although not showing breathing distress or similar symptoms, suffer from Kawasaki disease. Something to be wary about. Lastly: Sweden, a country that opted for a more relaxed approach to the pandemic now shows a higher rate of infection and deaths that its neighbours and will start adopting more stringent measures. Interesting that countries like New Zealand and Taiwan seem to do so much better that most other countries. Could it be that the female leadership caused decisions to be made by the head where the brain is located and not the other 'small head'?

    I disagree that elderly people going out for basic NECESSITIES a few days per week (an example would be the new Bohol EO by their gov yap who apparently realizes the problem) will risk overrunning local hospitals which currently are treating zero active cases. The ways to guard against spread of infections are well known; you probably disagree and that is OK but I don’t think requesting a reasonable accommodation for the basics of life is “moaning and groaning” unless such reasonable accommodations were totally impossible, which has not been shown to be the case. But thank you for your concern. It is premature but degamo may have the same thinking as mr yap.

    a load of c**p... why do no other countries implement this ban ?? maybe because they recognize that age is no worse a factor than smoking, drinking and just general bad living practices that know no age limit.... we are able ( maybe more than you) and are capable of following the rules of safety in protecting ourselves and others....
