The number of areas in the National Capital Region under granular lockdown has dropped to 100 from 117 as of Thursday, data from the Philippine National Police (PNP) showed in a report by GMA News.

In an update, the PNP said the areas under granular lockdown were reported in Metro Manila's 65 barangays.

Granular lockdowns were imposed on 48 houses, 25 residential buildings, 16 subdivisions or villages, seven streets, and four residential building floors.

According to the PNP Public Information Office, local government units (LGUs) will decide on imposing and lifting granular lockdowns.

To ensure security and adherence to minimum health standards, the PNP has deployed 363 personnel and 410 force multipliers to the concerned areas.

Metro Manila Council (MMC) head and Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez earlier said the presence of one COVID-19 case is enough to impose a lockdown on a house or a condominium floor.

To impose a lockdown on an entire street, he said there should be at least two COVID-19 cases.

Granular lockdowns are micro-level quarantine for areas classified as "critical zones" by the local government unit (LGU).

According to officials, granular lockdowns could be implemented on a house, compound, street or building with high cases of infections.
