And finally… no ifs, no butts

The president of the Philippines has threatened to round up Filipinos who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 and “inject the vaccine in [their] butt”.

“If you don’t want to get vaccinated, I’ll have you arrested and I’ll inject the vaccine in your butt,” President Rodrigo Duterte said on TV this week.

He added: “If you will not agree to be vaccinated, leave the Philippines. Go to India if you want or somewhere, to America.”

Human rights lawyer Edre Olalia has pointed out that the president can’t arrest people who have not committed a crime, WGN9 reports.
