President Rodrigo Duterte will today decide the kind of quarantine that will be imposed in Metro Manila. He is seen to have three options: Extend the general community quarantine (GCQ), impose a modified GCQ (MGCQ) or revert to a modified enhanced community quarantine.
Malacañang said that the same options apply to Cebu City and other areas where the risk of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infection is still high. In an interview with DZBB radio, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that the primary objective is to find the balance between reviving the economy and providing medical care for Covid-19 cases.
“It’s a gamble so let the President make the decision,” Roque said.
