    Hello from Mindanao,

    No Scuba diving has been permitted by Davao city government for nearly one year now yet bizarrely playing Golf has been permitted in the same period since the start of the pandemic and continual lockdowns

    No explanation offered whatsoever, however, the question has to be asked who plays golf? The answer is politicians and their friends so I shall leave you to decide where the corruption lies in that decision.

    And as regards to a pandemic in the Philippines its total tosh and government propaganda, it's a Scamdemic if you look at the recorded death statistics.

    Out of a population of 107 Million people in the Philippines, less than 10,000 people have died and even those death stats are totally unreliable and suspect as no one dies of anything else anymore other than covid 19 so they can cash in.

    PhilHealth gave Davao Region P566,793 per COVID-19 patient, former lawmaker says | ABS-CBN News

    (Covid 19 deaths per head of population = 00.0093% of the population).

    How many Philippine dive operators and resorts have become bankrupt and their employees have no job, no money to pay rent or put food on the table for their families because of this Scamdemic lie by powerful people?

    Stay Home, Eat dust!

    Time for the worm to turn.

    No comparison. I play golf. Never come within 5 meters of anyone else and it’s all outdoors. One of the few activities we can do safely in the pandemic. Not sure why you need to bash it. May as well bash cycling and walking outdoors too.

    I am not bashing Golf per se.

    Scuba diving is a far more harsh environment for a coronavirus virus to survive with salty water, baking sunshine, high temperatures and high pressures at depth so why the disparity in not allowing scuba diving yet allowing other activities is my point?

    Do you know what "per se" means? You absolutely bashed golf only. That's "per se".

    Will not comment on your "Covid is a scam theory" and politicians are "cashing" in on the disease. That's quite conspiratorial and gives you away.

    I played a few rounds at Wak Wak in Manilla....it was hot!

    My club here in NY was open all year as well. One to a cart and don't touch the flag pole were the Virus rules.
