The results that policymakers had hoped for when the Philippines was locked down in March 2020 to curb the spread of COVID-19 did not happen. A year after, the National Capital Region and the surrounding provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal have again been put under lockdown, with 11 hours curfews, the highest infection rates, and healthcare systems stressed to critical levels. In this scenario, the week-long enhanced community quarantine has been extended.
