A few days back Peace Adviser and National Task Force (NTF) Covid-19 chief implementer, Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. said the government was studying the possibility of extending the quarantine which will end in April 12.

Galvez said the next two weeks will be critical for observation since it has yet to be seen whether the quarantine has resulted in any significant flattening of the curve or decrease in the numbers of infected persons with COVID-19.
On the 14th of April, the national  government is expected to start with its mass testing in the National Capital Region (NCR) to identify and isolate all possible Covid-19 carriers, Galvez said.

Mass testing will also be done in Calabarzon, Central Luzon, Davao, and Zamboanga peninsula.
