- Advertisment -

During the first week of the Enhance Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila, authorities have already caught over 5,000 violators in the same period. 

Manila Police District (MPD) chief Brig. Gen. Leo Francisco affirmed that they will continue to apprehend violators. The department is also eyeing to ignite operations in the coming days. 

Citing data from the Philippine News Agency, it reported that on April 5, some 489 violators were caught. 

“Everyday talagang may huli kami. Simula sa 1,000, ngayon nasa 400 something sa curfew. Sa ECQ, yun naman yung sa umaga bago mag-curfew, yan yung mga unauthorized persons outside of residence, may huli rin kami,” Francisco said. 

Among the violations are drinking in public, going out half-naked, urinating or smoking in public places, anti-nose or the use of videokoe outside prescribed hours, and obstruction of justice.
