MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – All 17 Metro Manila mayors have preempted President Rodrigo Duterte’s upcoming announcement on the community quarantine status of the NCR+ (National Capital Region and the provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Rizal and Laguna) effective May 1. NCR+ has been under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine or MECQ for the period ending April 30.
In a consensus decision, the mayors said they will put their respective jurisdictions under MCEQ Flakes which includes shortening the curfew hours to 10pm to 4am.
Residents of Metro Manila and nearby provinces praised the mayors’ decision, saying it truly reflects their being total flakes.
