MECQ comes with tighter security checks

The re-imposition of the MECQ in the National Capital Region and in four other provinces namely Cavite, Rizal, Laguna and Bulacan was triggered by a call of the medical community for a “breather” in the country’s battle against the killer disease and “rethink” its policies and priorities amid the pandemic.
