Since the start of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) last March 17, more and more COVID-19 cases are being recorded. Though the number of recoveries had surpassed the number of deaths, officials are still saying that the number of cases will rise as many people are reported to be out of their homes for the past few days.

Though there is no announcement about another extension of the ECQ, a total lockdown may be possible if people continue to violate rules.
