Checkpoints at curfew, hindi aalisin kahit ilagay sa GCQ ang Metro Manila at iba pang lugar sa bansa – Eleazar

Robie de Guzman   •   May 27, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Tuloy pa rin ang pagpapatupad ng quarantine control points ng Philippine National Police kahit pa ilagay na sa general community quarantine (GCQ) ang mga lugar na kasalukuyang nasa ilalim ng modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ).

Ayon kay Joint Task Force Coronavirus (JTF CV) Shield Commander Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar, dapat pa ngang paigtingin ang pagsasagawa ng checkpoint dahil tiyak na dadagsa ang mga tao sa lansangan kapag niluwagan na ang quarantine restrictions.

Ani Eleazar, nasa diskresyon ng mga hepe ng local police kung ililipat nila ang checkpoint o kaya ay magpatupad na lamang ng random checkpoint sa matataong lugar.

“Hindi natin kayang i-inspect lahat ng mga sasakyan sa kalsada kagaya ng ginawa natin during ECQ… It will create a monstrous traffic kung lahat ng sasakyan ay ating i-che-check,” ani ng opisyal.

“Kaya nga through modified checkpoint, random ang gagawin natin d’yan, depende sa discretion at peculiarity ng mga lugar kung saan nagsasagawa ng checkpoint,” dagdag pa niya.

Paliwanag ni Eleazar, bahagi ng PNP anti-criminality campaign ang checkpoint kaya hindi ito maaaring alisin.

Isa ang Metro Manila sa mga lugar na isinailalim sa MECQ hanggang Mayo 31.

Una nang napaulat na inirerekomenda na ng Metro Manila mayors na ilagay na sa GCQ ang Metro Manila simula sa Hunyo.

Ang Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases naman ay isinusulong ang pagpapatupad ng localized lockdown o quarantine sa mga barangay o bayan lang na may mataas na kaso ng novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

dahil sa posibleng pagluluwag ng quarantine restrictions, sinabi ni Eleazar na mas hihigpitan nila ang pagsasagawa ng inspeksyon sa mga establisimiyento upang masigurong naipatutupad ng maayos ang minimum health protocols na inilatag ng Department of Health.

“Dapat nga na magsagawa ng maraming inspection kasi doon natin makikita ngayon kung andon ba yung pagsunod sa mga protocols set by DOH,” sabi ng opisyal.

“Sa pakikipag-ugnayan at sa tulong nitong mga mall management and security officers nila ay makapagsasagawa tayo ng tamang implementasyon ng mga guidelines na ito,” dagdag pa niya.

Palalakasin din nila ang mobile checkpoint na isinasagawa ng mga tauhan ng PNP Highway Patrol Group.

“Ito ang magsasagawa ng Oplan Sita at Oplan Habol at magsasagawa ng mga spot inspection,” ani Eleazar.

Sinabi rin ng opisyal na tuloy pa rin ang pagpapatupad ng curfew sa ilalim ng GCQ ngunit hindi na hahanapan ng quarantine pass ang mga lumalabas ng kanilang tahanan.

“Mandated sa lahat ng mga quarantine status na meron pa rin tayong curfew sa mga non-workers sa gabi,” paliwanag niya.

Sa halip, mas hihigpitan ng pulisya ang pagbabantay sa pagsusuot ng face mask at pagpapatupad ng physical distancing measures kontra COVID-19. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Lea Ylagan)

Metro Manila may transition to GCQ after May 31 —Malacañang

Marje Pelayo   •   May 27, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force against COVID-19 hopes to come up with a decision on whether to extend or lift the existing modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in Metro Manila and other areas in the country after May 31.

Malacañang sees a greater chance of transitioning from MECQ to general community quarantine (GCQ) come June 1 as recommended by National Task Force on COVID-19 Chief Implementer Carlito Galvez and Interior Secretary Eduardo Año.

“They gave their recommendation to the IATF but I can quote both of them, chances are we will in fact be transitioning to GCQ in Metro Manila according to the chief implementer and the DILG secretary,” noted Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque. 

The Metro Manila Council (MMC), likewise, recommended to the IATF to place the National Capital Region (NCR) to GCQ.

If that is so, public transport will be allowed but only on a limited capacity to ensure that minimum health standards are observed. 

Meanwhile, Roque appealed to both the public and private sectors to finalize their work schemes following the 50% operational capacity wherein half of the total number of employees will be working on site and half  will be working from home.

“We are appealing to both the private and public sector to ensure at least 50-50 workforce,” Roque said. MNP (with details from Rosalie Coz)

BPI updates loan payment programs for clients

Maris Federez   •   May 24, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) has updated its deferred payment programs for consumer and business loans, extending the grace period for settlement of payment.

This is part of the bank’s measures to align with the “Bayanihan We Heal as One” Act after the National Capital Region and other major cities and provinces were placed under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ).

On its website, BPI announced that it is offering a 30-day grace period on its clients’ financial obligations with the bank.  

The Bayanihan To Heal As One Act covers the payment extension of BPI and BPI Family Credit Cards nationwide. 

This covers all current accounts and past due accounts with payment due dates falling within the period of March 17 to May 31, 2020, without qualifications or the need to apply.

The bank has also suspended all its auto-debit arrangements since April 2.

BPI’s extended deferred payment program covers the following:

  • credit card clients who are given 30 days from their last due date falling within the MECQ period to settle their obligations;
  • personal and retail loan clients who are given a 30-day extension for every due date that falls within the coverage period, effectively extending the maturity date of their loans.
  • business banking clients which will be given a 90-day extension to settle their payment dues;
  • credit cardholders who have been paying their bill in full for the past six months prior to the covered period.
  • retail and personal loan customers, on which the accrued interest due to the payment deferral is charged to the client on the next amortization after the MECQ is lifted.

These clients will be exempted from paying late payment charges, interest-on-interest, and other penalties.

In the event that the MECQ is extended, the coverage period for all programs related to the Bayanihan We Heal as One Act will automatically be adjusted accordingly.

The extension of the programs is nationwide, and applies even to those who are not in areas under MECQ. Clients who wish to continue their payments as usual are given the option to do so. /mbmf
