Metro Manila mayors will meet on Monday afternoon to make a recommendation on whether the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in the National Capital Region (NCR) should be extended.
The mayors met on Sunday but did not arrive at a consensus as they need more data.
“Wala pang consensus na nabuo kahapon dahil ang mga Metro Manila mayors, ‘di muna nagdedesisyon hanggang hindi nakukuha yung data analytics at yung input ng economic managers natin at iniintay din natin yung input na mangagaling sa private sector (There was no consensus made yesterday among Metro Manila mayors. So we will not make a decision after we get data analytics and the inputs of economic managers, and we are also waiting for inputs from the private sector),” said Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said in a radio interview.
He added Metro Manila mayors will meet at 4 p.m. today.
The Metro Manila Council (MMC), composed of all mayors from the National Capital Region, on Sunday met with Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque 3rd on possible scenarios under various quarantine classification.
“Bumababa ang kaso pero yet at critical level pa rin ang dami ng Covid cases kaya kailangan nating ipagpatuloy natin yung contact tracing natin (The number of Covid cases has gone down but is still at a critical level so we need to continue our contact tracing),” Teodoro said. SOVEREIGNPH
