Philippines man dies after doing 300 squats for breaching Covid curfew

A 28-year-old man in Philippines has died after allegedly being forced by village guards to perform 300 squats as a punishment for violating the Covid quarantine. Darren Manaog Penaredondo was caught buying water after 6 pm, in violation of the Covid curfew in the city of General Trias. The following morning Penaredondo had a convulsion, went into a coma and died around 10 pm the same day.

This story is more an indictment of retributive justice than it is of COVID restrictions, but right wing extremists gonna reactionary I guess.

They should have only escorted him home. This is BS. How dare they.

should’ve fined him $500, but workouts for breaking lockdown sounds honestly like a good idea.

Covid kills 0.05%. What will protect us from stupidity, which is altogether more lethal and infectious.

Some people will use this as an example of why covid restrictions should end, but the truth is that if the criminal justice system were reformed and the cops were more educated, this wouldn’t have happened.

Wonder what this guy thought would happen when he decided to completely ignore the order? Considering the punishment for weed possession over there if I wanted water I would get it by 5, 5:30 the latest. Bet all his friends and family do to from here on out.

To be honest 28 yo male should not have any issue doing 300 squats. I mean a healthy male even with no training at all should be able to do 300 squats. Just saying. Maybe he had some underlying problems but anyway he should’ve been forced to do 300 squats for no reason.

Rest assured, Duterte’s government has been doing stuff like this long before COVID
