SILANG, Cavite — Gov. Juanito Victor ‘Jonvic’ Remulla Jr. strongly denied that the province will be locked down or placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) this Christmas season due to the rising number of coronavirus diseases in the province.
according to his post on his official social media account on Facebook, Wednesday, December 23, 2020
“Admittedly, I am not proud of these numbers because COVID remains undefeated. Pero hindi ko maitatagong very proud ako sa mga Caviteño dahil talaga namang bumaba na ng husto ang mga positibong kaso natin.” Remulla posted on Facebook.
“Siguro naman ay maaari na nating maipagmalaki na kahit papaano ay umangat ang antas ng pagmamasid at pag-iingat ng ating mga kalalawigan laban sa pandemya na nagparalisa sa ating lahat nitong 2020. Ang Cavite po ay patuloy na mananatili sa MGCQ ngayong kapaskuhan. I repeat: NO LOCKDOWN. Pero absolutely no Christmas parties or gatherings pa rin,” Remulla added.
