Joey Salceda calls for 2-week extension of Luzon Lockdown



House Committee on Ways and Means chair Joey Salceda on Thursday called for an extension for two weeks of the implementation of an enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon.

In a statement, Salceda said a premature lifting of the ECQ was "against science, economics, and history."

He said there were two critical factors in fighting the COVID-19 disease, namely, mobility and isolation tendency.

Salceda said that no reputable source in the medical community had suggested to "shorten the lockdown."

Instead, Salceda said they proposed to even implement it to at least six weeks to avoid premature lifting of restrictions and triggering a massive wave of new infections.

Salceda reiterated his call of a massive testing for COVID-19 in order to "confront the enemy."

It was Caloocan City Representative Edgar Erice who earlier proposed to extend the ECQ for another month, considering that the novel coronavirus has not been fully contained yet.
