The Manila City government will be retaining its 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. curfew hours for adults amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the city.

Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso issued Ordinance No. 8692, setting the said curfew hours in October 2020.

The city government is also enforcing a 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew for minors in line with Ordinance No. 8547 that was issued in June 2018.

In a Facebook post on Thursday (March 11), Domagoso urged the public to continue observing minimum health protocols issued by the government as the number of COVID-19 cases in the capital city continue to rise.

“Tumataas na naman po ang mga positibong kaso ng COVID-19 sa ating lungsod. Patuloy po tayong mag-ingat (The number of positive COVID-19 cases in our city is rising. Let us continue to be careful). Wear your mask, wash your hands and stay home,” his post read.

Data from the city government showed that the active COVID-19 cases in Manila climbed past 1,000 on Wednesday (March 10).

As of Thursday, there are 1,206 active cases out of 29,892 confirmed cases in the city. Of this number, 27,866 have recovered while 820 have died.
