Sinas allegedly vaccinated against COVID-19

MANILA, Philippines – Former special envoy to China Ramon Tulfo claimed that Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Gen. Debold Sinas, who recently tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), was injected with Sinopharm vaccine in November last year.

Tulfo divulged in his column that Sinas as well as members of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) received the vaccine along with him. The Department of Health is currently conducting an investigation on the said illegal vaccination of the members of the PSG and Tulfo.

He wrote: “Sinas will not die of the dreaded virus infection. Sinas will survive because he got injected with the Sinopharm vaccine along with this columnist in November last year.”

Furthermore, The Manila Times columnist believes that Sinas will survive the deadly virus infection that has claimed the lives of 12,887 people in the Philippines. As of writing, there are 66,567 total active cases in the country.

He wrote: “I learned from medical experts that one who has been inoculated with the anti-Covid vaccine could still contract the disease; but his chances of survival would be much greater than one who has not.”

Tulfo’s revelation comes after the PNP Chief was slammed for skipping health protocols and not undergoing medical screening upon arrival at Oriental Mindoro last March 11. Sinas announced he tested positive for COVID-19 the same day.

“So, I quite understand Sinas when he violated safety protocols when he visited PNP troops in Oriental Mindoro recently by not passing through medical screening,” Tulfo added.

Prior to being appointed the head of the PNP, Sinas came under fire for the mañanita held to celebrate his birthday in May last year. At that time, Luzon was still placed under enhanced community quarantine. Despite the criticisms, President Rodrigo Duterte came to the former Metro Manila police chief’s defense and guaranteed his competence and expertise in the police work.
