Francis Wakefield



Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on Friday disclosed that Malacañang is closely monitoring the situation in the country with the impending implementation from enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) to modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) and general community quarantine (GCQ) amid a weather disturbance in the Philippines.

In a statement, Roque said that all concerned agencies are alert and on a standby through the Oplan Listo headed by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

“We ask the public, especially those who will be hit by Typhoon Ambo, to remain vigilant and to cooperate with authorities as they implement their disaster preparedness and response to ensure everyone’s safety,” Roque said.

More than 140,000 people were forced into cramped shelters as a powerful typhoon hammered the Philippines on Friday, compounding the nation’s battle with the coronavirus pandemic.
