Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that Metro Manila and four nearby provinces may shift to an ordinary General Community Quarantine (GCQ) status.
The NCR Plus is under general community quarantine (GCQ) “with restrictions” until June 15.
“The numbers are looking good. Based on the figures Metro Manila Plus might be looking at a de-escalation. It may not be to MGCQ, but it could be to ordinary GCQ,” Roque said.
Duterte’s hometown Davao City has now shifted to the second strictest lockdown due to rising coronavirus cases.
“Other areas po na nasa MECQ ay binabantayan po talaga natin ‘yan, and we are always data driven po,” Roque said.
