MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte visited the resting place of his parents in Davao City on Monday, a week after Undas, as All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day are collectively known in the Philippines.

The president’s father, Vicente Duterte, was a governor of then-undivided Davao province, and his mother, Soledad Duterte, was one of Davao’s respected civic leaders.

They are buried at the Roman Catholic Cemetery in Davao City.

Cemeteries were closed from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2 to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission during “Undas.”
