In his press briefing today, April 11, Sunday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced that NCR Plus will be under MECQ as per IATF guidelines starting April 12, 2021.
The announcement fell one day short straight from President Rodrigo Duterte who had earlier promised that he will be appearing live on national TV this Sunday for his regular public address.
The President, whose photos of his jogging exercise made headlines yesterday, has ordered PhilHealth to pay COVID-19 claims from private hospitals. In return, these private hospitals promised to add more COVID-19 beds to accommodate upcoming patients.
The modified enhanced community quarantine will laat until the end of April, said Roque.
