After a couple of months being in strict lockdown in order to contain the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the government has started to ease down lockdown measures in the country. And Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla, in his request to allow backride in a motorcycle for couples, he got denied accordingly.
He was informed that his request has been denied but he has not yet received an official response regarding this. He appealed this to Health Secretary Francisco Duque III and to the Inter-Agency Task Force of the government’s COVID-19 response.
He did this despite social distancing protocols.
