The city government of Manila has appealed to all replica owners of the Black Nazarene not to go to Quiapo Church as traditionally done.
Every year, before and during the January 9 feast day of the Black Nazarene, replicas are brought by devotees from the National Capital Region and neighboring provinces to the minor basilica for the blessing.
However, rising coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections placed Metro Manila under Alert Level 3 while the Archdiocese of Manila will not hold physical masses from January 7 to 9 to prevent the crowd.
“Sa mga organisasyon na may mga replica katulad sa amin, kami mismo, meron kaming replica sa Velasquez, Tondo, ipanatili nyo na lamang sa ating mga chapel ‘yung ating mga replica at yung mga deboto ng Nazareno at doon na lamang tayo magdasal sa kaniya kaniyang chapel (To the organizations that has the replica, like us, we have a replica in Velasquez, Tondo, keep your replicas in your own chapels, and to the devotees of the Black Nazarene, just pray in your chapels),” Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said in a PNA report.

President Rodrigo Duterte deserves credit for the success of the country’s coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) response.
Despite their differences, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso praised Duterte for steering the national government’s commendable vaccination drive.
“Pangamba at takot sa impeksyon, pangamba at takot sa hanapbuhay, dahil dito, nagdulot ito ng konting pagkakalito (Apprehension and fear of the infection, worry and fear in employment. These caused a bit confusion) but life must go on. We give credit where credit is due,” he said in an interview during his tour of markets here on Friday.
“Totoo naman kapuri-puri yung ginawa ni Pangulong Duterte at ng IATF (What President Duterte and the Inter-Agency Task Force did is indeed admirable),” he added.
The current administration is not perfect but Domagoso said President Duterte listens to the public and corrects the mistakes of officials.
