Statement on the appeal of the medical community

The medical communities have made an appeal to reimpose ECQ in NCR to give our health workers breathing space. Throughout the pandemic, they truly have been carrying a heavy burden. On the other hand, the IATF has the difficult task of finding the right balance between opening the economy for job creation and restricting movement to stop the spread. Thus, I am glad that the IATF has responded to the President’s directive and committed to review this situation to find a way to address the concerns of our doctors and health workers. In the meantime, we should all do our part to help our health workers. Stay home if your situation permits. If you need to be out, be strict about social distancing, mask-wearing, and handwashing.
