The hotel said some 150 of its quarantined guests had nowhere to go if its closure continues. Like the city government, netizens were unmoved by Berjaya’s reasoning.

“Kung hindi napatakas si Poblacion Girl wala naman kayo problema. Marami namang hotel ang compliant sa COVID-19 protocols,” Twitter user @imjaytrabuco wrote.
