AP PHOTOS: Dragon dance ban saddens Manila residents

A member of a Dragon and Lion dance repair a lion’s head as the group seeks other ways to earn a living at a creekside slum in Manila’s Chinatown, Binondo, Philippines on Feb. 3, 2021. The Dragon and Lion dancers won’t be performing this year after the Manila city government banned the dragon dance, street parties, stage shows or any other similar activities during celebrations for Chinese New Year due to COVID-19 restrictions leaving several businesses without income as the country grapples to start vaccination this month.
