Many countries across the globe are currently faced with a bigger challenge set by the COVID-19 pandemic. One of these nations is the Philippines which recently recorded a spike in the cases of the disease.
Following the recent spike, the national government placed the entire National Capital Region (NCR) under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). Its nearby provinces, the provinces of Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, and Laguna, were also under ECQ for two (2) weeks.
Amid the ECQ implementation, movements were limited in NCR Plus. The national government provided assistance for those who are greatly affected by the restrictions and as well as those who lost their jobs amid the crisis.
After two (2) weeks of ECQ in the whole NCR and the four (4) provinces, the national government decided to ease the quarantine measure to modified ECQ. It gained different reactions from the professionals from different fields and the public.
