S. Korea to acquire more anti-missile radars, interceptors to counter NK threats

SEOUL---South Korea plans to add two more ground-based anti-missile early warning radars and build three Aegis-equipped destroyers in the next five years in an effort to better detect and intercept incoming missiles from North Korea, the defense ministry said Wednesday.

Bakit kailangang mag-mask
Itong linggong ito ay ibinalik sa MECQ o Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine ang NCR at mga karatig na lugar tulad ng Bulacan at Rizal. Ito ay dahil sa mabilis na pagtaas ng bilang ng may Covid19, at sa mga nangangailangan ng medikal na atensyon, nauubos na ang lugar na ikinalalagyan nila sa mga ospital kung kaya’t ito na din ang hiniling ng mga frontliner na health care workers. Dahil dito, pinaigting ang pagpapatupad ng minimum health requirements na manatili sa bahay kung walang importanteng lakad, obserbahan ang social distancing, maghugas ng kamay at magdisinfect, at mag suot ng mask. Dito nagtanong ang ating reader. “Bakit ba kasi kailangang mag mask? Ang hirap huminga at napaka sagabal at hindi kumportable.”
