Should we criticize the Quiapo Church for massive crowd at the Feast of the Black Nazarene mass activities

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Feast of the Black Nazarene has drawn around 32,700 devotees in the Quiapo area so far, according to estimates of the Manila local government. Masses are being held in lieu of the traditional Traslacion or procession, which was canceled due to the pandemic. 

The Quiapo Church urged devotees to follow health protocols and fill out the contact tracing forms. It also asked the Catholic faithful to visit other churches which have replicas of the image of the Black Nazarene instead of flocking to Quiapo Church.  

Devotees of the Black Nazarene observe social distancing as they attend the mass at the  on Saturday. 

Only 400 devotees are allowed to enter the church per fiesta mass due to quarantine rules. Not to encourage this, but the penultimate question really is: knowing the massive number of devotees, why did Quiapo church and LGU allowed the event to happen?

Still, we're not even sure the before and after of these arrangement. Commuting to and from the Quiapo Church could become the cause of an infection. It is still a massive gathering.

What we are now seeing in Quiapo is a potential major COVID-19 super spreader event, which makes it a mistake on the part of Manila LGU and IATF to allow Manila Archdiocese to do what it wants and not to completely lock down the entire Quiapo district from January 6 to 10.

Eh kung di ba naman sangdamakmak na kabobohan ng Manila government officials. COME ONE, COME ALL ang peg? Best and brightest ka talaga yorme Isko Moreno.

The B117 strain is potentially more contagious. Bahala kayo diyan.

Yang katigasan ng ulo natin will result to extended quarantines and the lockdowns will continue to slow down the economy.

To avoid further crowding, Quiapo Church officials say other devotees can visit the following churches that also have the replica of the Black Nazarene image from the Minor Basilica: Sta. Cruz Church, San Sebastian Church, and The Nazarene Catholic School.

If this turns out to be a COVID-19 super spreader event, heads should roll, starting from the highest-ranking officials.

The Manila LGU, Manila Archdiocese and IATF should be held responsible for letting the situation in Quiapo go out of hand. 

""Traslacion" means to transfer or move from one place to another. This year, it's not the Black Nazarene that's doing that but NCov. . .why couldn't they have just gotten a good TV crew, closed the church, and streamed the Masses online with tight shots of the Nazarene? Dapat yata binendisyunang disinfectant ang ipinam-basbas. And if I were a suicidal terrorist, this is the best time to strike."   #Transmicion2021 - Susan Isorena - Arcega
