MANILA, Philippines — At least 220 areas across 82 barangays in Metro Manila are under granular lockdown as of Thursday, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said.

In a televised briefing on Friday, PNP chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said these specific areas under granular lockdown affect over 2,600 households in the region.

Since the pilot alert level system in Metro Manila began on Sept. 16, Eleazar said authorities have accosted over 93,000 violators of quarantine rules with an average of 11,712 per day.

“So, ito po ay mababa nang kaunti doon sa average natin during MECQ na 26 days na 12.6 or 12,600 na araw-araw but just the same, itong 11,700 daily na ito for the past eight days ay marami pa rin. 51% niyan ay binigyan namin ng warning; 43% naman iyan iyong ating tiniketan; at 6% ang dinala sa police station,” Eleazar said.

Still, Eleazar said the pilot of the alert level system in the region remains “generally peaceful.”
