Minutes ahead of President Duterte’s announcement on the updated quarantine protocols, Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso places 31 barangays under 48-hr hard lockdown from July 4, Saturday 12 a.m. until July 5, Sunday 11:59 p.m. This comes after said clusters recorded more than three COVID-19 cases each.

The Executive Order No. 31 signed by Domagoso will effectively put these barangays under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) to facilitate surveillance, rapid risk assessment and testing operations “as the city’s response measures to the imminent danger posed by COVID-19.”
