Tuguegarao City and Baggao town in Cagayan will undergo a period of stricter quarantine restrictions after authorities saw an increase in cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

According to Jun Veneracion’s “24 Oras” report on Tuesday, Tuguegarao will be placed under a 10-day enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) starting January 20, 12:01 a.m.

“Sana ay mapababa nila in 10 days, but I am not very optimistic that in 10 days maibaba natin ito because they have 236 cases now and that represents about 65% of the 373 sa probinsya namin,” Governor Manuel Mamba said.

Mamba earlier endorsed calls for a 10-day ECQ in the city.

The local government of Tuguegarao said the ECQ will be lifted on January 29, but may be extended for five more days if infections continue to increase.
