The local government of Laguna will appeal the province's inclusion on the list of areas that will be under modified enhanced community quarantine amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an Unang Balita report on Wednesday.
According to Dr. Eduardo Janairo, Department of Health Region IV-A director, they would recommend that only parts of the province be placed under modified ECQ.
He said most of the COVID-19 cases in Laguna are in the first and second districts, while the third and fourth districts could be considered "low-risk" areas.
Aside from Laguna, also placed under modified ECQ from May 16 to 31 are National Capital Region and Cebu City. --KBK, GMA News
