Exodus anew out of the city

Motorists and commuters from Metro Manila, making their way eastbound on Marcos Highway towards Masinag and Rizal, fill the road during rush hour on Monday. People working and staying in the National Capital Region during the past two months made a mad rush to exit after the government declared it to be placed back under Modified Extreme Community Quarantine (MECQ) starting 12 midnight, until Aug. 18, along with Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite and Laguna provinces, amid the increasing number of COVID-19 cases that have taken a toll on the country's health workers.
