MANILA, Philippines — The chief of the Philippine National Police ordered unit commanders in Metro Manila to assess and coordinate with their respective local government units on the need for additional deployment of policemen in public and leisure areas following the downgrading of COVID alert in Metro Manila.


This comes as quarantine restrictions in Metro Manila are set at a more relaxed Alert Level 3 until the end of October as the COVID-19 situation in the capital region continues to show marked improvement.


In a statement, Police Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said that the PNP recorded a number of people flocking to public areas across the Metro on the first weekend of the Alert Level 3 implementation.
