Medical groups in Bicol warn of an India-like COVID-19 surge if the region does not shift to stricter quarantine rules.

In a joint letter to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año, the groups asked that the region be placed under a stricter quarantine classification.

The Philippine College of Physicians Bicol chapter tells CNN Philippines private and public hospitals are full and now lack medical equipment.

But Sorsogon Governor Chiz Escudero refutes the group's statement.

We now talk to the Philippine Medical Association Governor for Bicol region, Dr. Ricardo Isip.
