(Eagle News) — Balitalakayan interviews Dr. Ted Herbosa, special adviser of the National Task Force against COVID-19, explains the projections of COVID-19 cases under an Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila.
Dr. Herbosa explains that the effects of the community quarantine restrictions would still be felt in the following weeks.
He said that the three weeks of restrictions – including the General Community Quarantine with heightened and additional restrictions and the two weeks of ECQ — would be felt in the next few weeks.
As of now, the COVID-19 wards of some hospitals in Metro Manila have already reported full capacity.
Herbosa said that they would still wait and assess the situation so they could make a recommendation whether to extend the ECQ after Aug. 20, or not.
