Restaurateurs, Barbers Reel as Philippines Flip-flops on Virus Curbs – Bloomberg

Eric Teng was preparing to welcome his restaurants’ first dine-in customers in weeks on Wednesday when the Philippine government suddenly backtracked on its decision to ease virus curbs.
“It’s unacceptable, but we have to live by these overnight declarations,” said Teng, who runs a group of restaurants including Mango Tree and Cocina Peruvia in Manila. “That’s a live-or-die statement for us. Like any business, we need as much stability as possible, not these abrupt statements, abrupt directives.”
