Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque revealed on Saturday that some parts of Metro Manila might still be under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) after May 15.

He added that some cities might also be downgraded to general community quarantine (GCQ) by May 16.

“Hindi mananatili sa ECQ ang buong Metro Manila after May 16. Hindi rin naman magiging-GCQ. It will be granular, it will be surgical,” Roque stated during the Laging Hand public briefing.

However, he clarified that no final decisions have been made regarding the quarantine in the different cities of Metro Manila.

President Rodrigo Duterte will be making those final decisions on Monday, May 11, and he will base those decisions on the data he is able to gather.

“Sa Lunes po magkakaron ng approval ang ating Presidente kung anong mangyayari sa atin ng May 15.

“‘Yan po ay ibabase natin sa siyensiya titignan ang dami ng kaso ng COVID sa isang siyudad sa isang barangay at titignan natin ang kapasidad na magbigay ng critical care,” the spokesperson explained.
