DAVAO CITY — Davao del Norte governor Edwin Jubahi has revoked the executive order he earlier issued which was supposed to place the whole province under modified community quarantine (MCQ), and will abide by President Duterte’s announcement that it will remain under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) until May 15.

The President had said Thursday that Davao del Norte remained as one of the areas considered as high risk for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“Kita nagatuo nga ang mga lakang sa atong Presidente alang gayud sa kaayohan sa kinatibuk-ang katawhang Pilipino ( I believe that the measures taken by the president is for the betterment of every Filipino people),” he said.

The governor said he was still urging the people to follow their quarantine measures and provisions stated in the Executive Order No.34 to end COVID-19 crisis.

” Ang gobyerno maningkamot gyud nga mahatagan mo namo sa inyong mga panginahanglan (The government is doing its best to give your needs), ” he said.

Jubahib said that, along with other elected officials, and members of the Philippine National Police and Philippine Army, the provincial government will continue to bring aid to the people.

” Atong ibutang kanunay sa atong hunahuna ug kasingkasing nga “Walay problema nga dili masulbad kung kitang tanan magtinabangay (We should put in our mind and heart that there are no problem cannot be solved if help each other),” he said.
