Will Iloilo City extend Covid-19 quarantine?
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)
