Metro Manila mayors are against the recent lifting of restrictions allowing cinemas in their jurisdictions to reopen, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said Sunday.

The chief executives are already drafting a formal notice opposing the national government’s decision to allow the resumption of operations of movie theaters in areas under general community quarantine, said MMDA chairman Benhur Abalos.

“Kasi po unang-una, it’s enclosed. Pangalawa, wala namang sineng 30 minutes. Matagal po yan at air-conditioned,” Abalos said.

While reopening of the economy is important, Abalos said the government should be careful and do it step by step.

“Tingnan natin, unti-untiin natin kung walang spike. Nakakatakot dito mag-spike. Mahirap bumalik sa dati. Eto na yung bakuna eh,” he said.

COVID-19 vaccines from the World Health Organization-led COVAX Facility are expected to arrive soon to the Philippines, giving hope to Filipinos that immunity herd will soon be achieved.
