MetadataShow full item record
Boracay island may be reopened to tourists in July, instead of being shuttered for 6 months as planned, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said Thursday. President Rodrigo Duterte had ordered Boracay's shutdown from April 26 after flagging inadequate sewage that turned some waters into "cesspools."Once the Boracay task force is formalized, we will propose certain milestones. "Once these milestones are hit, we can have a so-called soft opening. Our target is in 4 months," DILG Assistant Secretary Epimaco Densing III told DZMM.
