Lorenzana orders deployment of more troops to enforce strict quarantine measures

Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfn Lorenzana said the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is deploying more troops to implement strict quarantine measures.

Lorenzana who also acts as the head of the national task force against COVID-19, said he has directed AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Felimon Santos to help the police enforce lockdown protocols by sending more personnel to Metro Manila and other areas with high COVID-19 incidence.

“These sights do not inspire confidence that we will achieve our objective by the end of this month,” Sec. Lorenzana said.

Brig. Gen. Edgard Arevalo, AFP spokesperson said there is nothing to be alarmed about the AFP preparing and deploying troops “when it becomes necessary.”
As per Arevalo, several local government units in Metro Manila have already sought assistance from the military in containing COVID-19.
“What we should all be alarmed about instead is the fact that a lot of people are blatantly violating the law and disobeying the rules and health protocols which must be strictly enforced, otherwise people die,” he said.
