Bukidnon Gov. Jose Maria Zubiri Jr. asked the national government on Wednesday (May 13) to retain the general community quarantine (GCQ) order and not lift quarantine measures in the province yet. | JiggerJerusalem

Zubiri said lifting the GCQ would put the people of the province in danger of coronavirus transmission since some areas in its boundaries have a high tally of COVID-19 cases, like the cities of Davao and Cagayan de Oro.

To date, Bukidnon has only one confirmed COVID-19 case, that of a village leader from Valencia City who was at a cockfight derby in Davao City, which is considered as an infection cluster. The Bukidnon board resolution said it was premature to let the province’s guard down because areas that border the province had an increasing number of cases.

“We followed every order that you gave and we are proud to say that we are successful, please listen to the people of Bukidnon,” Zubiri said, addressing the President.He said the provincial government prepared for COVID-19 by buying medical equipment for the Bukidnon Provincial Medical Center, considered as the province’s COVID-19 referral hospital.On Wednesday, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año announced that areas declared as low-risk would be placed under modified GCQ.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said people’s movement in places under GCQ goes back to normal though people would still be required to wear masks, observe social distancing and other health protocols.
