MANILA, Philippines — The Valenzuela City government has extended its liquor ban indefinitely.

The city government was supposed to lift the prohibition on the sale and drinking of alcohol in the city today but said the ban would be prolonged “indefinitely” to prevent more residents from contracting COVID-19.

Owners of businesses selling alcohol have turned to social media to ask for help with their finances.

Valenzuela has 13,111 confirmed COVID-19 cases as of Thursday, with 11,691 recoveries, 322 deaths and 1,098 active cases.
