MANILA, Philippines – Nilinaw ng Joint Task Force COVID (JTF CV) Shield ngayong Martes na kailangan pa ring kumuha ng travel pass ang mga bibiyahe mula Metro Manila papuntang Tagaytay.

“Ang guidelines pa rin ng National Task Force is that kung hindi ka APOR (Authorized Person Outside Residence) at ang lakad mo ay hindi related sa work mo hindi pa rin tayo pwedeng lumiban, lalabas tayo ng probinsya,” ang pahayag ni JTF CV Shield commander Lieutenant General Guillermo Eleazar.

“’Yung galing sa Manila kapag pupunta ng Cavite, dapat po may reason ka ng pagpunta doon at kung hindi, dapat kukuha ka pa rin ng travel authority,” dagdag pa niya.

Ginawa ni Eleazar ang paglilinaw matapos buksan ng pamahalaang panlalawigan ng Cavite ang turismo sa Tagaytay.

Ang hakbang ay ipinatupad matapos ang ilang buwang pagsasara mula nang pumutok ang Bulkang Taal noong Enero ngayong taon na sinundan pa ng COVID-19 pandemic.

Iginiit rin ni Eleazar na binuksan lang ang turismo sa Tagaytay para sa mga residente sa Cavite at hindi nito saklaw ang Metro Manila.

Ang Metro Manila ay nasa ilalim ng general community quarantine (GCQ) habang ang Cavite naman ay naka-modified GCQ. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Joan Nano)

Duterte to consider nationwide MGCQ if vaccine supply is enough

Marje Pelayo   •   March 1, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte is considering the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force against COVID-19 to further ease quarantine restrictions in the country particularly in Metro Manila.

“I am considering it. Our economy is really down, as in down so the earlier na mabilisan itong vaccine, the better,” he said.

However, he wants to make sure first that there is enough supply of COVID-19 vaccines not only in Metro Manila but in all provinces before he allows the full reopening of the country’s economy to prevent further decline.

“If the vaccine is available to anybody for one reason or another, sa mga probinsiya na-distribute na ‘yan kasi hindi naman mag-abot ng 110 million. Sa estimate nila it’s about 40 million. Kung maka-hit tayo ng 40 million o nandiyan na ‘yong vaccine, maski mag — mayroon tayong mga 20, 30 (million) bubuksan ko na.” the President said.

President Duterte acknowledges the people’s need to work to be able to eat and survive and this will only be sustained by reopening the economy and also to allow business to regrow.

Over the weekend, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the National Capital Region and some other areas will remain under general community quarantine on March 1.

The rest of the country will remain under modified general community quarantine.

Recommendations placing NCR under MGCQ were also raised, however, the President responded that without vaccine rollout, no MGCQ will be declared.

On Sunday (February 28), China’s donation of 600,000 doses of Sinovac vaccine has arrived in the country and the government is expected to begin vaccine rollout on Monday (March 1). MNP (with inputs from Rosalie Coz)
