Philippines: Authorities manning roadblocks in some parts of the Philippines are using coffins to drive the message home. The coffins bore the sign, “Stay home, or stay inside.” A coffin on the street of Santo Tomas, known as the province’s top coffin maker, has become a grim warning to the public of that lurking killer that is the new coronavirus. Police and church leaders displayed the white coffin on the middle of the road with a message that read: “Stay at home or stay inside (the coffin).” Fr. Ronnie Cao, San Matias parish priest, described the stunt as the “wit of the Kapampangan in time of Covid-19.” Pampanga has three confirmed coronavirus cases. The coffin also drove home its point at a village in Orani town, Bataan province. Marvin de la Cruz, 47, barangay chair of Mulawin, placed two white coffins at the checkpoint as “a strong message to everyone wishing to violate the enhanced community quarantine.” Now, few people passed by that checkpoint, the village official said. .
