To prevent the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, the whole Metro Manila is placed under ECQ for two (2) weeks until August 20. There are strict border checkpoints and many businesses are not allowed to operate.

The temporary stopping of the operation of some businesses also mean many people losing their source of income most especially the daily wage workers amid the ECQ.

To aid the poorest of the poor, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte agreed to extend cash aid to the residents in areas under the ECQ now.

Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Pres. Duterte approved the P3.78 billion cash for the residents of Metro Manila, Laguna, and Bataan. Laguna is under ECQ until August 15 while Bataan is under ECQ until August 22.
