Default Ageism

The tourism department today confirmed that even on MGCQ anyone over 59 will be banned from visiting Boracay. ( I also presume that families with babies or children will also be banned.)

Some malls and shops have signs outside proclaiming that over 59's were banned from entering.

MGCQ still says seniors should be confined to their home (with some exceptions). When will it ever end!

It is ageism, and will probably remain in force until a vaccine is available. A year or two of home confinement means little to a person under 30 (over their remaining life), however it is a large chunk out of a senior's remaining time on this planet; especially if one is in their 70's or 80's.

Ah the joys of being a baby boomer has come back to haunt us here, where we sought freedom from a life of work and toil in our perspective countries.

Cheers, Steve.

The lockdown for this baby boomer has been a financial windfall!

No, I'm not concerned with political correctness; just stating my thoughts regarding this which will effect seniors in many ways. Some may not be able to leave their homes for months and this will impact on their health both physical and mental. Usually seniors have more disposable income than other age groups. Policy makers seem not to be able to see the consequences of their often knee-jerk policies. If you like, it's my personal rant on a policy.

Life is what you make of it, and there are always good sides to everything, even if I am a Boomer. Life is good.

To be honest, I haven't really been affected apart from not driving into Makati twice a week.
For me most other things are the same as in January, I even wore a mask then.

Maybe in the west where state/occupational pensions are common but we are in the Philippines. Here often you work or starve.
