National Police Chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar on Thursday assured the public that no arrest will be made against unvaccinated Filipinos.
In an interview over DZMM, Eleazar said that the police will only ask individuals who are not yet vaccinated against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to return home.
Eleazar was reacting to the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte during his Talk to the People, asking unvaccinated individuals to strictly stay at home.
Duterte instructed the PNP and barangay officials to escort those who yet to be inoculated against the virus.
“Para sa di pa nagpapabakuna pinakamaganda na wag muna maglalalabas,” Eleazar said.
“Nag-eencourage tayo ngayon na talagang magpabakuna,” he added.
