COMMUNIST rebels have been invited for free vaccinations by a military commander in Mindanao after some slain and arrested New People's Army (NPA) members in recent operations in Bukidnon were found to have been tested positive for Covid-19. But first, they have to surrender to authorities and give up their arms struggle before they can be inoculated.

Ten NPA rebels were arrested by government troops in a recent clash in San Fernando, Bukidnon and three of which and one of their comrades who died in the encounter have tested positive for the virus, according to Maj. Gen. Romeo Brawner Jr., commander of the Philippine Army's 4th Infantry Division.
