CEBU CITY, Philippines — Cebu City’s general community quarantine (GCQ) status is about to end this August 31.
Three days before the deadline, people can be seen milling along the streets in downtown Cebu City despite limited public transportation. Only modernized jeepneys and buses were allowed to operate on the city’s roads during its GCQ phase.
