Metro Manila has had a rough time because of the coronavirus pandemic, and seems to be suffering more than other areas of the Philippines.
It has been on General Community Quarantine (GCQ) for the past several months, while other regions of the country have been able to move to modified or no quarantines. If casinos had hoped for a change this week, they can stop holding their breath. Metro Manila will remain on GCQ until the end of the month, and could even face tighter restrictions.
After five months of being on forced lockdown, Metro Manila casinos and other businesses had been watching the clock as yesterday approached. The GCQ was initially set to expire on 15 July 2020, but, according to presidential spokesperson Harry Roque, it had to be renewed until July 31.
Roque explained in a press conference, “There was a recommendation from UP to revert Metro Manila back to MECQ [“modified enhanced” community quarantine] to slow down the spread of the disease.
At first, the President agreed but our chief implementer and our Secretary of Interior appealed to reconsider because our Metro Manila mayors vowed to strictly enforce localized lockdowns, enhance testing, tracing and treatment, and implement expanded restrictions under GCQ. So, the President agreed not to revert Metro Manila to MECQ for the next two weeks.
