Harry Roque To Davao City Residents: Don’t Be Choosy

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque has reiterated his previous statement that Filipinos should not be “choosy” when it comes to which Covid-19 vaccine they would be receiving.

Roque’s latest statement comes in the wake of news that Davao City, President Rodrigo Duterte’s hometown, will be receiving Pfizer vaccines next month, while the rest of the country will have to settle with vaccines from China or Russia.. News reports have previously indicated that Duterte’s preference would be the Chinese or Russian vaccines.

Does this mean Duterte’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara, is at odds with the President’s preferences and statements?

Nevertheless, Roque said Davao City residents shouldn’t be choosy and be contented with the Pfizer vaccine.

WHITE HOUSE UNDERGOES DISINFECTION, EXORCISM!

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Hours after Donald Trump left, sources tell The Adobo Chronicles that The White House underwent an extensive disinfection in preparation for the arrival of its new occupant, President Joe Biden.

The disinfection was considered standard protocol, especially considering that the Trump family as well as key staff had tested positive for the coronavirus.

But in addition to the disinfection, the Presidential residence also went through exorcism to ensure that evil spirits are banished in time before Biden, a Catholic, moved in.

“We hope that all sources of possible infection as well as negativity were taken care of by the twin moves,” a White House spokesperson said.
