MANILA, Philippines — The number of areas in Metro Manila placed under granular lockdown has dropped to just 14, affecting only 44 households, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said Tuesday.

In a taped briefing with President Rodrigo Duterte aired Tuesday morning, Año said a total of 399 areas across the country are under granular lockdown as of Nov. 13.

“Ibig sabihin talagang bumababa ang ating mga numero,” Año said.

(This means our COVID-19 cases are really decreasing.)

The government is conducting a phased nationwide rollout of its five-tier alert level system as President Rodrigo Duterte approved its implementation across the country.

This new system shifted the focus from community-wide quarantine restrictions to granular lockdowns.

Metro Manila is currently under Alert Level 2 until Nov. 21.
