Roque said that Metro Manila would remain under Alert Level 3 until November 14 despite the decreasing number of new COVID-19 cases. He explained that this was a precautionary measure as the government had also approved the gradual increase in public transportation to up to 100% starting November 4.
The government can downgrade to Alert Level 2 if the cases in Metro Manila do not increase in the next two weeks, he added.
