Cong. Salceda suggests 2-week extension of ECQ

ALBAY Second District Rep.  Joey Salceda recommends to the government an extension of two weeks in the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

 

Salceda insisted there is a high probability that the country would be in danger if the lockdown will end immediately at the end of April.

 

He said, it is necessary to do mass testing that is consistent with the country’s population and it must take at least 350, 000 tests.

 

To date, Salceda said, the Philippines has just conducted 55, 000 tests.

 

“Ang average po na test is 8,500 per million. Tayo ay 547 per million. So, ang layo pa natin para masabi na… Kasi kung nakakagawa tayo ng 150,000 per two weeks, ibig sabihin i-extend natin ng two weeks para maabot natin yung 350,000,” Salceda said.
