The fight against the pandemic is not over.

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has called for an immediate ban on mass celebrations such as fiestas and processions to curb the spread of the new coronavirus disease.

The proposed movement restrictions came as the country’s cases of infections continued to soar despite community quarantine measures.

“Hindi pa tapos laban atin sa COVID,” the senator tweeted Wednesday.

“Dapat mahigpit na huwag payagan ng IATF ang lahat ng:

  1. Fiesta
  2. Prosesiyon
  3. Street parades
  4. Mass gatherings
  5. Mass celebrations
    Dapat i-ban na kaagad.”

The country has the second most number of COVID infections in Southeast Asia, next to Indonesia. Local cases of coronavirus have reached more than 490,000 so far.
