Philippines faces worst COVID-19 crisis in Southeast Asia


The Philippines has the highest number of coronavirus infections in Southeast Asia.
The government imposed one of the world’s strictest lockdowns which lasted from March until June.
The lockdown in the capital, Manila is easing, and many are hoping it will help kickstart economic recovery.
But it will be tough – thousands of businesses have closed and millions of people are out of work.
