Manila churches close during MECQ

Catholic devotees hear a livestreamed Mass outside Quiapo Church in Manila on Sunday, as churches and other places of worship are closed to the public under modified enhanced community quarantine. Manila Bishop Broderick Pabillo called on churches to return to online masses for two weeks in response to medical workers' call for a 'timeout' due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
