“Atong nabantayan nga daghan lang gihapon ang gadagan sa kadalanan bisan sa ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine) og number coding sa syudad sa Sugbo, gani ang uban wlay lisensya og expire ang rehistro sukad pa atong niaging tuig ang gadagan,” said the CCTO. 

(We noticed that there are still many vehicles travelling around the city even when we are under the ECQ or even with the number coding. Some don’t even have licenses or the registration have been expired for more than a year.

CCTO reminded the public that under the ECQ, staying at home is mandatory, and going outside should only be out of necessity or for work.
