Low-risk and moderate-risk areas in the Philippines have recently been placed under a 'general community quarantine' which took effect on Friday, May 1.

Under the newly-implemented GCQ, the government has allowed more businesses, including malls and shopping centers, to operate.

Following this news, KAMI learned that one netizen recently shared photos of people allegedly swarming outside malls and other centers after the GCQ was implemented.

In his Facebook post, Alfred Calayo shared that the photos were taken in Roxas City, "Unang araw sa pagdeklara ng GCQ (General Community Quarantine) sa Roxas City, Capiz.

"May mga guidelines pa rin dapat sundin kahit nasa GCQ na. Ingat people."

In the photos, people could be seen waiting outside the mall without practicing social distancing.

His post, which garnered over a thousand shares on Facebook, prompted various netizens to air their concerns over the Philippines suffering from a second wave of coronavirus.

"Unang araw pa lang yan tas ganyan na."
"Grabe di man lang matakot sa second wave. Practice social distancing po."
"Mukhang ma-ECQ lang ulit kayo."
"Kung sa probinsya ganyan na, pano pa kaya sa Metro Manila kapag nag GCQ na?"
