Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 16)— Heads up, Metro Manila residents!

More cities in the capital region have imposed a curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., in line with the Metro Manila Council's recommendation for the campaign against the coronavirus disease.

Here is the list of cities with approved curfew orders as of Monday morning:

Muntinlupa

Navotas

San Juan

Makati

Quezon City

Manila 

Pasay

Pasig

Taguig

Caloocan

Mandaluyong

Las Piñas

Parañaque

All these cities have imposed curfew either starting over the weekend or Monday.

Manila City, which earlier said the curfew will only be effective by Thursday, clarified the directive is already in place. Manila Mayor Isko Moreno told CNN Philippines the curfew will last "as long as the country is under a state of public health emergency."

The cities' directives, however, will not cover those working during curfew hours (particularly those in the call center and health industries), as well as individuals traveling for health and humanitarian purposes.

Some orders— particularly those in San Juan and Quezon City— threaten to charge those who disobey the curfew for violating Republic Act No. 11332 or the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Health Concern Act. Citizens guilty of the violation may be either fined ₱20,000 to ₱50,000 or jailed for one to six months.

There are now 140 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines, including 11 deaths. Globally, the infectious disease has infected more than 167,000 people in 146 different countries and territories, including China.

This is a developing story.
