  • BREAKING: The Luzon-wide Enhanced Community Quarantine is extended until April 30, 2020, according to Sec. Karlo Nograles, Inter-Agency Task Force spokesperson.

    In an online press conference, Sec. Nograles announced that President Duterte approved the two-week extension recommended by the IATF to allow government to boost the number of testing centers and daily test capacity. The target is to reach between 13,000 to 20,000 tests per day by April 27.
