MANILA - The city of Parañaque has imposed a "24-hour" curfew, its mayor said Monday as Luzon remains under lockdown in a bid to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Local officials in the city have given a home quarantine pass to each family which allows only 1 member to go outside and buy essential supplies, according to mayor Edwin Olivarez, also chairman of the Metro Manila Mayors' Council.
"Inimplement na po namin ang 24-hour curfew para po sa ating enhanced community quarantine," he told radio DZMM.
Other mayors of the capital region are also considering to impose a round-the-clock curfew, Olivarez said. They are set to meet Monday morning, he added.
The mayors earlier approved an 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew during Luzon's lockdown.
As of Sunday, there were 380 cases of COVID-19 in the Philippines, including 25 deaths and 17 recoveries.
