The Regional Inter-Agency Task Force (RIATF) in Eastern Visayas earlier passed a resolution recommending to place the region under general community quarantine (GCQ) from its current modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) due to the “alarming” number of infections.

The national IATF, however, did not grant the request.
