APORs that are in granular lockdown should be allowed to work according to Bongbong Marcos
APOR – Former Senator Bongbong Marcos Jr. appealed to the Inter-Agency Task Force to allow fully vaccinated Authorized Persons Outside of Residence that are in granular lockdown to leave their house for work.
According to Marcos, APORs should be allowed to make a living in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was just recently when the pilot implementation of the new quarantine protocols in Metro Manila started.
From ECQ (enhanced community quarantine), MECQ (modified enhanced community quarantine), MGCQ (modified general community quarantine), and GCQ (general community quarantine) it will be changed to Alert Level System.
There will be five alert levels to be implemented in local government units depending on the number of COVID-19 cases and healthcare system capability.
Metro Manila has been placed under Alert Level 4. This means the case transmission is high, as well as the hospital bed utilization rate and hospital ICU (intensive care unit) utilization rate.
While others are opposing the new protocol, some tend to follow in order to prevent further increase of COVID-19 cases in the country with almost 20,000 cases daily.
Apparently, there are areas that have been subjected to granular lockdown where only healthcare workers and returning overseas Filipino workers are considered APOR.
This prompted former senator Bongbong Marcos to appeal on IATF allowing APORs to leave their house for work in spite of being placed in granular lockdowns.
“Let them go out for a living. And allow them to be with their families after work. It’s their daily routine to get through with this pandemic… financially and mentally,” he said.
