Duterte might declare another extension of Luzon-wide ECQ, Go says

    MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte might declare another extension or modification of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) measures presently being implemented to control the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said.

    Go, also a member of the Joint Congressional Oversight Committee overseeing the implementation of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, confirmed in a radio interview with DZBB of GMA News TV on Sunday, April 19, that the President will be meeting with experts to assess the current situation and determine the next course of action.

    The ECQ imposed in Luzon, which was supposed to end on April 13, was recently extended until April 30.


    “Ang Pangulo marahil magde-decide ngayong linggong ito kung i-extend pa po o luluwagan (ang enhanced community quarantine). So bukas po kakausapin nya ang mga health experts, marami po syang inimbita pati rin po mga dating secretaries of health ng iba’t ibang administration, baka makapagbigay ng payo sila,” Go said.

    “Sa totoo lang po, mahirap ang ating sitwasyon sa ngayon. Ipit na ipit ang mga Pilipino. Sa pagkaalam ko, mas dapat higpitan sa mga susunod na 11 araw hanggang April 30,” he added, referring to the need to strictly implement the existing guidelines imposed by the government at this time.

    Go, also the Chair of the Senate Committee on Health, said that he continues to monitor the situation of many Filipinos affected by the ECQ in Luzon as well as in many parts of the country. As legislators, Go said that the Senate is also focused on overseeing the implementation of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, especially the Social Amelioration Program targeting the poorest of the poor and other vulnerable sectors.

    “Ako naman bilang senador at Committee Chair ng Health, inuuna ko po (kung paano protektahan) ang buhay ng bawat Pilipino. Kaya lang po kailangan din nilang kumain. Tingnan din natin ang ekonomiya. Problema dito wala pa tayong medisina. Problema natin una, buhay ng tao. Pangalawa, pagkain ng tao. Pangatlo, economy. Pang apat medisina, wala pa tayong medisina para sa sakit na COVID,” he enumerated.
