According to the Cabinet official, they have observed a widespread transmission in barangays in Cebu, as well as a high case doubling time for confirmed cases.

“Due to the increasing number of cases and widespread community transmission in majority of barangays in the city, as well as the consistent case doubling time of less than seven days, and significant increase in critical care utilization against critical care capacity, Cebu City shall be placed under enhanced community quarantine,” Duque said.

“This is the recommendation, Mr. President, to be placed, to be escalated back to ECQ. For the same reasons, Talisay City, a component city under the province of Cebu shall be placed under modified enhanced community quarantine until June 30,” he added. Cebu, along with Metro Manila, transitioned last June 1 to a general community quarantine to jumpstart businesses affected by the pandemic.
