Mayor Jerry Treñas is studying the possibility of extending the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Iloilo City.

This, after the city confirmed its first local case of coronavirus (Covid-19) transmission.

“We are studying all options… I don’t want to make a decision that is not based on a scientific and medical recommendation,” said Treñas. (https://bit.ly/2xQgNQS)
