This comes a week after the government placed Metro Manila and the four adjacent provinces, known collectively as the “Greater Manila Area” under a general community quarantine (GCQ) bubble from March 22 to April 4.

During the implementation of the ECQ, a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. will also be enforced.

The government task force issued the new mandate as the country reels from a surge in COVID-19 cases. As of March 27, the Philippines recorded 9,595 additional cases, driving the active infections to 118,112.
