More than 20,000 violators were apprehended in Davao City since the start of the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) on June 5, 2021, the Davao City Police Office (DCPO) said in a report by SunStar.

Based on the breakdown, persons with no face shield in public areas topped the list with a total of 6,867 violators.


Second on the list were persons not wearing face masks with 5,042 violators, followed by those who did not comply with the social distancing and mass gathering, with 4,084 violators.

For the violators of the 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew, the number reached 2,505.

However, there are still some individuals who violate it)," Aguilar said during the AFP-PNP virtual presser on Wednesday, June 23.
