‘Binu-bully tayo’: Iloilo ECQ unfair – Cadiao

0 61

Antique Governor Rhodora Cadiao deemed as unfair the reversion of the city and province of Iloilo to enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) following the detection of the Delta variant of Covid-19 in Pandan town.

“Somebody is nagpapalusot. Pinaglalaraun tayo dito sa Region 6. Halata ko na binu-bully tayo dito,” said Cadiao.

A Pandan couple tested positive for Covid-19 in May but it was only last week that they were confirmed to have been infected with the highly contagious Delta variant. (

“Panis na na balita ‘yan,” the governor said, adding that the case was “matagal na.”

The wife died on May 31 due to hypoxemia secondary to pneumonia and the underlying cause of death was Covid-19 infection. The husband, meanwhile, recovered.

Cadiao said she was confused as to why Iloilo is under ECQ while Antique is under the lighter general community quarantine.
