Better safe than sorry: Jerry Treñas gets IATF nod to ban flights from NCR Plus

0

Residents of Metro Manila and provinces with a high number of COVID-19 infections cannot fly to Western Visayas for now.

Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas said the Inter-Agency Task Force has approved the request of Iloilo and its nearby provinces to turn away visitors from the “NCR Plus” and Cebu for the meantime as they seek to preserve their low COVID-19 transmission numbers.

The city has a lot to lose as they have already managed the situation and is only dealing with 5 active cases now. The ban is in place from April 4 to 10 covering the entire Region 6.
