It was reported that the President rejected the request of his common-law wife, Honeylet Avanceña, for him to fly back to his home in Davao City, according to Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo. 
Duterte, as quoted by Panelo, said: “No, (I won’t return to Davao City). The face of the country is Manila and the President had to be here so I’ll be here.”
The Presidential Spokesperson said the Chief Executive opts to hold a daily meeting with IATF-EID to assess the Covid-19 outbreak in the country.

“The President had to undertake stringent measures because he’s expecting a spike. He wants to see how effective these measures would be,” he said. “All we have to do is really observe protocols, personal hygiene. Keep washing your hands. Distance yourself from the person near you. That’s a very simple task to do.”
