MANILA, Philippines — The government has already completed the distribution of over P11-billion worth of financial aid to residents of Metro Manila who were affected by the implementation of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in August, according to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año.

“Tapos na po ang pamamahagi ng ayuda sa National Capital Region (NCR). Ang kabuuang halaga na naipamahagi ay umabot na sa P11.25 billion kung saan mahigit 11 milyong benepisyaryo ng NCR ang nakatanggap na ng ayuda mula sa pamahalaan,” Año said during a taped meeting of Cabinet members with President Rodrigo Duterte aired on Thursday.

Año said the Makati City local government unit is set to return to the Bureau of Treasury some P29.4 million provided by the national government for the distribution because all its listed beneficiaries have already received their cash assistance.
