PHILIPPINE STAR/ MICHAEL VARCAS

PEOPLE come in droves to vaccination sites, such as this shopping mall at the border of the cities of Marikina and Antipolo, the day before the imposition of a two-week hard lockdown in the capital Metro Manila. The city government of Manila, in a statement, said investigation indicated that residents panicked over rumors that unvaccinated persons will be arrested if caught outside their homes. The Metro Manila Development Authority, in a separate statement, said what prompted the crowd was the spread of “fake news” that only those vaccinated will be given cash aid during the lockdown.
