Checkpoints as Metro Manila placed under MECQ

Members of the Manila Police District Command set up a checkpoint at the corner of Quirino Avenue and Roxas Boulevard in Manila on Tuesday morning as Metro Manila is placed under modified enhanced community quarantine. The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Disease placed the National Capital Region, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna and Bulacan under MECQ from August 4-18 after heeding the call of health workers for temporary respite as hospitals get overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases.
