Duterte reiterates compliance with COVID-19 health safety protocols

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte did not elaborate on whether or not to extend the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).


In the televised message of the President, the relaxation of the restrictions does not mean that COVID-19 is no longer a threat to the country.


He said the areas with high COVID-19 cases are still under lockdown.


He also said that the restrictions would slowly be lifted as the country could not survive the second and third waves of COVID-19.


As such, the president also warned the public not to ignore health safety protocols such as wearing a face mask and social distancing in areas under the general quarantine community and other places to be also subjected to GCQ.


Joint Task Force COVID Shield Commander Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar advised the public not to travel to their provinces.


He expects the influx of people to return home especially those stranded in Metro Manila once ECQ is removed.


Eleazar said there is a high chance that the virus will spread again due to the human population and that the ECQ’s positive effects will only be in vain.
