Quezon City recorded seven additional coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases and three deaths as of 11 p.m. on March 27, bringing the total number of COVID-19 cases to 104 and the death toll to 17.

Meanwhile, the number of recoveries remained at nine cases.

The seven new COVID-19 cases are from Barangays Bungad, E. Rodriguez, San Roque, Teachers Village East, Teachers Village West, New Era and Pasong Tamo. These barangays had one new case each.


The Extreme Enhanced Community Quarantine (EECQ) has been implemented in barangays with two or more confirmed cases where fast transmission of the disease is highly possible.

The implementation of the EECQ is subject to review every day depending on the number of cases and the patients who would recover.

The City government said the following barangays are under EECQ:

  • Tandang Sora
  • Kalusugan
  • Ramon Magsaysay
  • Maharlika
  • Tatalon
  • Batasan Hills
  • Pasong Tamo
  • Central
  • San Roque
  • Paligsahan
  • Bagong Lipunan ng Crame
  • South Triangle
  • Culiat
  • Bahay Toro
  • E. Rodriguez
  • San Isidro Labrador

Barangay Central has been placed under EECQ even if there are no COVID-19 patients in the area due to the presence of numerous hospitals along East Avenue.

The Quezon City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and the Quezon City Fire Department continuously disinfect streets and highways.

The Market Development and Administration Department, meanwhile, disinfected four markets, namely: Galas, Kamuning, Roxas, and San Jose.

As of March 27, 2020, 67 barangays were disinfected bringing the total number of disinfected villages to 119.

The local government also reported that 730,000 food packs have been distributed.
