Under the latest quarantine update, the entire province of Palawan is still under modified general community quarantine status until May 14. However, due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in some areas, quarantine protocols are being enforced in hotspots. In addition to the precaution of implementing lockdowns in high-risk barangays, the operating hours of some establishments were also adjusted in accordance with the local inter-agency task force. There’s also good news for Coron residents as the area was deemed free from COVID-19 at the end of April. Read on for details on the medical news today.
