Just the day gone by (13th August), a video of holiday makers, believed to be from China, went viral on social media, inflicting outrage amongst Filipino netizens.
In the video, which reportedly took place in Boracay, a girl may also be noticed washing a kid’s privates at the seaside whilst some other girl seems to be burying the kid’s used diaper in the sand.
Ok I’m pRESSED about the ones Chinese ladies having the audacity to bury their kid’s diaper in the sands of Boracay. DISGUSTING. The island has trash containers scattered alongside the entrance seaside and so they in reality selected to position it in the sand 😩😩 %.twitter.com/PAfTQuf4yR

Soon after the video went viral, ABS CBN News reported that a part of Boracay island was once closed on Wednesday (14th August) for 24 to 72 hours to permit cleanup efforts to happen.
The nation’s Tourism Secretary, Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, has banned swimming in the seaside of Boracay’s station 1 and ordered the affected house to be cordoned off.
Meanwhile, Boracay Interagency Rehabilitation Group General Manager Natividad Bernardino has already been steered to find the vacationers in the video and record fees for violating the realm’s Anti-Littering Law, which lists urinating, defecating, and spitting in public puts, waterways, and leisure spaces as prohibited acts.
In April 2018, Boracay was once closed to vacationers for a 6-month cleanup because of the volume of sewage dumped immediately into the ocean, harmful the surroundings.
