Streets nearly deserted on 2nd day of ECQ

An ice cream vendor crosses an almost empty street in Marikina City on Saturday, the second day of a two-week long enhanced community quarantine in Metro Manila as part of efforts to curb the COVID-19 Delta variant. Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire on Saturday said the country will continue to see relatively high COVID-19 infections in the coming days likely due to the variant, adding that tougher lockdowns would only "delay further increase," but the growth of infections would not stop.
