The Binibining Pilipinas pageant has postponed its coronation night to June 27 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The coronation night was originally scheduled for April 17.

In a statement posted on social media, Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc (BPCI) said that they are moving the event “to safeguard the welfare of our staff and candidates.”

They also said that they will “continue to comply with government guidelines,” and that they will be holding virtual activities until they are able to stage pageant events.

Binibining Pilipinas determines who represents the Philippines in several international pageants, including Miss International, Miss Globe, Miss Grand International, and Miss Intercontinental.

The pageant’s postponement comes as the country experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases even as the government has loosened lockdown restrictions in the so-called NCR+ bubble which includes Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and Cavite. – Rappler.com
