  2. I live in a town south of Davao. We have had 1 confirmed covid, they eased up on the quarantine and in less then 2 weeks we now have 9 confirmed cases. Don’t be too thrilled yet. It has just been released that the first case was a lab tech at the provincial hospital and all subsequent cases were employees at the hospital

  3. Thank you Reekay. I’d guess it feels good to finally be able to give us so good news, and possibly be the first 😉 Cheers

  4. Curious to know how transportation will be like in Cebu city ? Will one still need a pass ? Will they enforce social distancing between love ones in mall.. lol. Lot of questions. Nice informative stuff Reekay. Thanks for doing the legwork. Hope to see you other than in the supermarket Reekay. Hopefully easyQ will be here soon..lol

  5. I hope Philippines opens by by mid June to accept tourists. I want to return there for the summer. July 3 – Aug 1.

  6. Does VN require a 14 day quarantine? As long as none of the countries require that I’ll hop around SE Asia until the PI opens.

  7. Here in London , as from Monday ! we can have BBQ with friends and family upto 6 people, holidays will start in July ( Spain ) very few new cases in London now …it looks like coronavirus naturally dies out …we hope…

  8. What I miss most is the dine-in experience. Looking forward to being able to actually eat what I order…..

    So much better off than I expected and very glad I stayed on this side

  9. Nice update, thanks.

    Just to correct something you said about how lethal the virus is…. the actual mortality rate in the Philippines is the same as in the US.

    To estimate this, you use the deaths/infected patients or cases. For Philippines, you have 921/15,558 = 5.9%. In the US, we have 101;000 deaths and 1.7M cases for a rate of 5.88%. The major difference in the lethality between our countries is that the US, due to the ineptness of the federal govt, has not managed the spread and therefore the number of cases. If Philippines had not been hyper-aggressive as they were in preventing the spread, and behaved like the US, the number of cases there would be 570,000 (population is 1/3 of US), deaths of 33,000.

    Some people have said that perhaps Duterte is not a great leader for various reasons, but in my view he damn well took care of the health of his people and deserves kudos for that. In the US, it’s a different story.

  10. This is great news, I went to this site: https://www.officialgazette.gov.ph/downloads/2020/05may/20200522-omnibus-guidelines-on-the-implementation-of-community-quarantine-in-the-philippines.pdf and under Modified General Community Quarantine all persons will be allowed out of their residences. I can’t wait, it feels like I have been in prison for the last 2 months as anyone over 60 was not permitted to leave their homes. Looking forward to Monday 🙂

  11. Reekay, I live in Bamboo Bay in Mandaue. Do you know if under GCQ are they going to take down check points at the city borders?
    Are they gonna bring back the Grab and taxi service?
    When are they gonna open up the J Centre mall immigration office?
    thanks in advance!

  12. Does that mean that I can fly back? I’m married to a Filipino but I have my son here with me and his mother was a Filipino but died almost 4 years ago. He’s still American. And does that mean I still have to quarantine for 14 days?

  13. I don”t think tourists form any country that has had high cases and high death rates will be welcome in Asia for a long time eg: UK,Italy,Spain and especially USA who have shown such disregard for following the rules and guidelines to limit the spread of the virus…Even when do do start to let us back we will have to get a visa in advance and probably have to have a medical certificate and quarantine for 14 days…So don’t go booking any tickets any time soon guys….Maybe next year!

  14. Thank you so much for your contribution.
    I will like to suggest you to upload more about VISA UPON ARRIVAL please

  15. Thank you Reekay, I am hoping to get to Cebu in mid August to see my fiance and kids. I am in LA so anxious to try the new PAL nonstop from LAX to Cebu roundtrip. It is still coming in at about 680 roundtrip. I am remaining positive that as time goes by more and more restrictions are relaxed for international travel there. Keep up the great work.

  16. The number of test in PH is far lower than other countries, PH cannot contain the virus anymore so it’s a gave up call to release the quarantine policy, god bless philippines

  17. Do you know about international flights leaving the Philippines? I hate to leave now but have to. I’m coming back hopefully by early 2021.

  18. Reekay, I am married to a Filipina. She is at our home in Cagayan de Oro. I am stuck in the USA. I use Tourist visas. How do I get a visa upon arrival? I can show a copy of my Philippine marriage Certificate. Will they allow me in the country?

  19. have you seen america’s death rate,over 100,000 so far and it will rise because your people are ignoring lock down

  20. Thank you Reekay for updating and letting us know what is happening there.I am waiting for international flights to open and looking forward to my month with my girlfriend in the Philippines….thank you and really love your channel

  21. Hi, Reekay. Can I health insure myself after arrival in the Philippines and do you think that COVID 19 will be covered as well?

  22. Hi Reekay, this was your best and most informative video yet. I appreciate the information. I plan on coming to the Philippines in September/ October after things open up. My fiancée and me are getting married. I really would love for you to attend our wedding in Mindanao. When the time comes how can we send you an invitation? What is a good mailing address? Thanks brother.

  23. Hi Reekay what about the people that are over 60 years old when can we start going out again ??
