Marcos Highway Showed Heavy Vehicle Volume on the First Day of GCQ

The enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) will cover Cebu City and Mandaue City. NCR, Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Zambales, Angeles City, and Laguna will be under the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) cover. All other provinces, that is not mentioned under ECQ and MECQ will be under General Community Quarantine (GCQ).

Public transportation is still not allowed in areas covered by MECQ. Meanwhile, all government offices under GCQ may operate with full operational capacity or through alternative work arrangements. Road, rail, maritime, and aviation sectors of public transportation will also return but with limited capacity and strict protocols.

In this case, Ricky Velasco posted a photo on his Facebook account with a caption of " There they go. This is Marcos Highway at 10:30 am today. The 1st day out on GCQ. The kamotes are thriving again."

Revealing a scenery where you can see a lot of private vehicles and motorcycles flocking on the road and causing traffic on Marcos Highway. It seemed like they have forgotten about the Social Distancing which is ordered by the President himself.

This is truly terrifying, as we can recall the vaccine for COVID-19 is not yet developed until today. General Community Quarantine and Modified Community Quarantine is just a step, a small step to be exact. If this GCQ and MECQ fails we are back on Enhance Community Quarantine.
