Leonardia gets own request for timeout from Bacolod doctors


Will they follow the fate of Metro Manila?

Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia found himself in a tricky position after a group of doctors in Bacolod also called for a Metro Manila-style timeout for two weeks, saying they too are overwhelmed with patients.

The group of 10 physicians who are tapped as consultants of the local task force appealed for a Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) in the city for 2 weeks amid “sustained community transmission.”

The politiko said they will meet virtually for a second time to tackle such an appeal, just barely a week since they first discussed the issue.
