Batanes: The Unbothered Queen of the North

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Batanes as your post-pandemic getaway?

Why not?! But minimize tourist visits please so we could keep it just as pristine as it is. From Basco, to Sabtang, then Itbayat, or the other uninhabited islands, you'll surely find beauty among it's land and sea scapes.

Who told you that a place isolated from modernity would be at a disadvantaged?

Batanes is the jewel of the north and the country’s northernmost province remaining undisturbed by the threat of the coronavirus disease.

People of Batanes continue with their normal daily life. It remains to be the only province in the country without Covid-19 infections, according to a data analyst.

The province’s far-flung location played a part in preventing the entry of the virus.

One possible reasons why Batanes remains to be COVID-19 free is their collectivism aside from it’s geographical advantage. It’s one of the places in the country worth visiting once this pandemic ends.

The Batanes provincial government has also set up an organic farm, at the famous Naidi Hills of Basco, to strengthen food sufficiency in the province using a “time-honored farming system of the Ivatan People.”

The farm was launched in 2018 as part of the "Sustainable Food Sufficiency" program in the province and to show new agricultural technologies fitted for its land and climate to Batanes residents.

Imagine doing your passion in the one of the most beautiful place in the country.

Batanes governor Marilou Cayco must be very proud. I would be because there is so much awe-inspiring "picturesque" sceneries here.

Federalism will be good if the leaders are like the LGU of Batanes. Kaso need pa natin linisin ang ibang LGUs like prohibiting political dynasties and removing some redudant elective posts. Or LGUs under mayor Isko of Manila (but not so sure if he is trapo waiting to finally reveal his true self), mayor Vico of Pasig, as well as with other great leaders out there. Ang ganda siguro ng Pilipinas if mga maaayos at karapatdapat na tao yung mga nasa puwesto.

That will probably take a lifetime or two hundred before it happens.

Lockdowns were also implemented early and the LGU monitored the outbreak in China to prevent the virus from entering Batanes.

The provincial government said that early closure and monitoring of its borders are the keys to successfully keep the deadly virus at bay.

Batanes governor says province continues to accept locally stranded individuals: But we strictly implement quarantine, closely monitored by frontliners and men in uniform.

For now Batanes should refrain from receiving tourist. More so- implement strict quarantine & testing of people who are part of the Balik Probinsiya program!

If government listened to our clamor in imposing travel ban early on, we shouldn't be into this mess. We should be living our lives like Batanes. Now we're suffering and will continue to suffer because Duterte's priority is clearly NOT the welfare of Filipino citizens but Chinese feelings.

Batanes is such a majestic place to visit. From it's people, cultures and sceneries. This place is the safest, cleanest and most disciplined. I hope Covid-19 will not conquer this tiny and peaceful island.

For now, let's just admire it from afar. Keep Batanes Covid-free please.

I'll be sure to visit again, but not during peak seasons when tourists are too much.

I've heard that wokes are planning to move to Batanes now? Please don't infect the peaceful island with your toxicity.
