MANILA, Philippines — The state-run People’s Television Network (PTV) will go off the air on Wednesday and will suspend the airing of its flagship programs up to Sunday to make way for the disinfection of its head office and its facilities amid rising COVID-19 cases.

PTV’s flagship programs, the “Laging Handa” briefing and the “Ulat sa Bayan,” will resume broadcast on March 22.
Lottery draws will be aired via livestreaming on PTV’s Facebook page, Twitter account @PTVph, and YouTube channel PTVPhilippines, it said.
