The island province of Batanes has heightened its alerts and placed stricter protocol to control the surge of COVID-19 cases.

Governor Marilou Cayco issued an executive order placing the entire province under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) until October 4 after 100 new infections were recorded on Monday alone.

Several isolation tents in covered courts have already been set up in anticipation for more isolation requirements as local health authorities confirmed an “unprecedented surge” in COVID-19 cases.
