Empty road Bonifacio Global City BGC, Taguig
One of the busiest cities in Metro Manila looked like a 'ghost city' after the declaration of "community quarantine" or lockdown in fight of the spread of the coronavirus in the Philippines.

The Bonifacio Global City or Taguig Business District is usually busy not only during weekdays but even weekends since it houses dozens of malls and recreational parks.

But in March, the noisy yet beautiful city became empty with people who normally walk around, hop on and off BGCbus and staying at the parks and roadside restaurants - who avoided (and forced to stay home) to visit the city.

Although many establishments were forced to close as per advised by the government, some offices, malls with supermarket, banks and restaurants still cater customers.

As of writing there are 77 new cases of COVID-19; total at 307 in the Philippines.

The spread of COVID-19 took very fast in the past week despite of the quarantine. But it would still better for us to fight and avoid direct contact to people as much as possible so that we can get over this and back to our normal life soon.
