- The Philippines extended on 29 Jan 21 partial COVID-19 restrictions in the capital Manila until the end of Feb 21 in a bid to slow a spike in infections after year-end holidays, officials said, warning the curbs could further delay economic recovery.
- The presidential spokesman confirmed in a statement restrictions that include limited operations at shopping malls and dine-in eateries, as well as curbs on gatherings and public transport capacity, would be prolonged.
- The rest of the country remains under MGCQ, the least restrictive of all quarantine classifications.
- On the other hand, Manila on 29 Jan 21 also relaxed travel curbs on foreigners coming from more than 30 countries, including the United States and China, that have detected cases of the more contagious British variant of the coronavirus starting from Feb 21.
- The move covers foreigners previously allowed to enter the Philippines, including those holding work visas and spouses of Filipinos, presidential spokesman Harry Roque said in a statement, adding that tourists would remain banned.
