IATF Orders Confiscation Of All Home Karaoke Machines

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines’ Inter-Agency Task Force on Covid-19 (IATF) is leaving no stone unturned in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.

Today, IATF ordered the confiscation of all Karaoke and videoke machines from all households across the country.

”We all know that karaoke singing is a favorite passtime among Filipinos, more so during this  period of community quarantine,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque told The Adobo Chronicles.

”But we also know that karaoke singing, including the sharing of microphones, is one of the ways in which respiratory droplets are released and which could potentially spread the virus,” Roque added.

The confiscation of karaoke machines will be temporary and the confiscated units will be returned to the rightful owners as soon as the country reaches the period of new normal.

The IATF move came just days after the LRT management advised commuters to refrain from talking on their phones or to each other while onboard the trains.
