After health workers sounded the distress signal, Albay Vice Gov. Grex Lagman is happy that many are taking the initiative and have decided to go on a self-imposed enhanced community quarantine themselves.

Lagman lauded those taking part in the voluntary ECQ for the next two weeks and said this was giving power back to the people.

He hopes this effort would be enough to bring down the COVID 19 cases in the country and help ease the burden on frontline workers.

He also said this mini sociopolitical movement would help people realize that if they want something done right, they should do it themselves.

This applies to other situations as well, he said.

If our institutions have failed us, we must not fail ourselves, he added.

Let’s discover our power as a people!

“Happy that many netizens are practicing active citizenry by deciding to spend the next two (2) weeks on VOLUNTARY ECQ mode! 💪🏼

This act is so empowering. It’s giving power back to the people. I am hopeful that this 2 week break on voluntary ECQ mode—-especially if those who committed to undertake the same actually follow through—-would be enough to do right by our health frontliners and save our overwhelmed health system. 🙏💪🏼

Because of this mini socio-political movement, many of us will soon realize that the saying “if you want to do something right, do it yourself” is true. I hope we can build on this for situations in the future. Where citizens can, through small acts of “self-governance”, decide for themselves on what’s right and just—-and act accordingly. Because if institutions have seemingly failed us, we can’t possibly afford to also fail ourselves . 🙏💪🏼,” Lagman posted.
