Last night President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines went to a meeting together with his cabinet members regarding about the latest situation of the Pandemic situation in the country by the covid19 virus these meeting was held due to the crying of some Doctors and medical groups to put place again a lockdown to Metro Manila due to the highly increase of numbers of positive cases in the Metro that start when the government started to put the City on General Community Quarantine.
And as a result of the meeting President Rodrigo has under placed the whole Metro Manila area and other higher risk areas back to the MECQ or Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine for a total of 15 days that will be going to be effective tomorrow on August 4, 2020 Tuesday amid the covid19 pandemic threat to our health. In a meeting last Sunday night the President said that the NCR and provinces of Rizal, Cavite, Laguna and Bulacan will be under MECQ again until August 18. Duterte made this very hard decision under the recommendation of some cabinet members led by the Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III. In the meeting also tackled was the request of the health workers proposal for a higher allowances and benefits, the President said that they will study the measure, adding they will recommend it to the pending Bayanihan 2 legislation. The government have also agreed to the recommendations made by the other government officials including granting a P10,000 to P15,000 sickness benefit for healthcare workers with COVID-19; the issuance of work and quarantine passes wil also be present to decrease the number of people going out; and more localized lock downs are going to be implement. This been made because of the front liners requestto have a time out for them for two weeks because they are getting stressed now at the situation because the number of cases have now been come to six digits as a total of 103,185.
For me the decision that have been made by the government is a big blow to the economy of the Country that is a very big mistake to close again the economy for another 2 weeks has we only now starting to recover from the previous lock downs that we have experienced i'm also so disappointed to all those doctors and medical groups that have started this petition.
