Episode 116 – The Social Distance Series: TFAL talks ECQ in Metro Manila with Isabelle Lacson

As we continue our social distance series, we wanted to know what the Covid-19 experience was like in the Philippines. For that perspective the crew talks to Isabelle Lacson, a Metro Manila resident and friend of Producer Mike and Elaine. Isabelle shares what life is like under Enhanced Community Quarantine or ECQ. While there are similarities to our experiences (social distancing, working from home, businesses changing to delivery models), there are distinct differences like requiring residents to have a pass to leave their neighborhood, an 8pm curfew, and the use of VIBER as a community organizing tool.

Many thanks to Isabelle for sharing her story with us!
