Ilocos Norte Governor Matthew Manotoc announced that the province’s capital city will be placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) for two weeks starting Sunday, August 1, as COVID-19 cases continue to climb.

In an executive order, the Politiko said that he has ultimately decided to implement stricter rules for Laoag due to an upsurge of cases in recent days. Aside from the city, Manotoc also placed the coastal town of Pagudpud under the same lockdown classification.

Laoag City remains to have the highest number of COVID-19 cases with 1,018 active ones, while Pagudpud has 143, according to the data from the provincial government.
