        Presidential spokesman Harry Roque has announced that Metro Manila will be placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) again from August 6 to 20 due to the threat of spike in COVID-19 Delta variant cases.

        In a televised address on Friday, Roque explained, Hindi po naging madali ang desisyon na ito. Maraming oras ang ginugol para pagdebatehan ang bagay na ito, dahil binabalanse nga po natin yung pagpapabagal ng pagkalat ng COVID-19 dahil sa Delta variant at yung karapatan natin na mabuhay at maiwasan, mabawasan ang hanay ng mga nagugutom.”

        Likewise, President Rodrigo Duterte also approved the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to subject NCR to general community quarantine (GCQ) with heightened and additional restrictions from July 30 to August 5.

        Extra guidelines include no indoor and al fresco dining, as well as indoor sports venues and tourist attractions; 30% capacity in personal care services shops and outdoor tourist spots; virtual religious gatherings; and necrological services (non-COVID-19 deaths) for immediate family members.

        More importantly, only authorized persons outside residence (APOR) are allowed to travel in and out of the NCR Plus area (Metro Manila, Laguna, Cavite, Bulacan, and Rizal). so you might want to hold off on that out-of-town ride.

        Roque added, “Masakit na desisyon po natin to dahil alam nating mahirap ang ECQ, pero kinakailangang gawin po ito para maiwasan yung kakulangan ng ICU beds at iba pang hospital requirements kung lolobo po talaga ang kaso dahil nga po sa Delta variant.

        As of writing, the Philippines has reported a total of 216 cases—eight of whom were confirmed dead—of the Delta variant.
