President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to jail people who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Philippines battles one of Asia's worst outbreaks, with over 1.3 million cases and more than 23,000 deaths.

"You get vaccinated, otherwise I will order all the village heads to have a tally of all the people who refuse to get vaccinated," he added. "Because if not I will inject them with Ivermectin which is intended for pigs."
