Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has warned the violators of the lockdown and said that they could be shot down if they violate the rules of the lockdown. He also said that abusing medical workers was a serious crime and it won’t be tolerated. While addressing the citizens, the President asked everyone to cooperate and follow home quarantine measures.

As per Channel News Asia, Rodrigo Duterte said, “It is getting worse. So once again I’m telling you the seriousness of the problem and that you must listen. My orders to the police and military … if there is trouble and there’s an occasion that they fight back and your lives are in danger, shoot them dead.”

“Is that understood? Dead. Instead of causing trouble, I will bury you,” he further said.

Here’s the video of people protesting for food.
