Modified Quarantine Community is likely to be implemented in Metro Manila – Duterte

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte is now looking for the possibility of opening “partially” some sectors in Metro Manila.


President Duterte made the announcement in a televised address on Monday related to the COVID-19 crisis.


“We might open partially, construction workers and things like that. You wait for the…lalabas na ho, lalabas na ‘yung modified and ano natin quarantine,” said the president.


“We will allow sectors of society na hindi talaga nagdidikit-dikitan. Kaya modified muna eh.”


The president did not elaborate on possible Enchaced Community Quarantine (ECQ) modifications.


Last week the president decided to extend the ECQ to NCR, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Albay and Catanduanes until May 15, 2020.


Meanwhile, regions that belong to low-risk and moderate-risk areas are subject to the general quarantine community.
