Staggered lifting of ECQ in Cebu urged

Rico Osmeña



Cebu City South District Representative Rodrigo Abellanosa on Tuesday proposed a staggered lifting of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) by concurrently transforming it into localized lockdowns or local quarantines-by barangays or clusters of puroks or sitios.

The lawmaker also proposed that food deliveries and public transportation be allowed to operate but only within the local quarantines.

The ECQ has brought together the clashing issues on controlling the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) virus which resulted into massive unemployment.

Abellanosa is appealing to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of the Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to consider the proposals.
