        Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque also released a statement: “A video, which has been circulating online, has come to our attention. Lugaw, or any food item for that matter, is considered an essential good. Delivery of food items must remain unhampered 24/7. Huwag natin harangin sa checkpoints.”


        In a separate interview, Roque told GMA News: “24/7 yung food delivery service. Bahala na sila, hindi ko na alam yung gagawin nila, basta hindi hinuhuli ang APOR (Authorized Persons Outside Residence). Di baBahala na yung mga private subdivisions diyan.”
