With the moratorium over, it’s now time for the public to visit the tombs of dear departed relatives and loved ones. But it defeats the reason of suspension of visitation last All Souls Day and All Saints Day as they are coming now in droves, threatening social distancing health protocol on Covid-19.
A testament to this is the photos above and below taken at Manila North Cemetery in Manila on Friday.
As decreed by the national government and LGUs, the four-day closure from October 29 to November 4 was intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as hundreds of thousands of people usually converge annually in public and private cemeteries. (IAm) Kiara Lauren Ibanez / BENJAMIN CUARESMA
