The Miss World Philippines 2021 coronation night has been postponed to August 8, after the government placed Metro Manila under general community quarantine (GCQ) “with heightened restrictions” from July 23 to 31.
Organizers announced the rescheduling on their Facebook page on Friday, July 23.
The coronation night was originally set for July 11, coinciding with the Binibining Pilipinas pageant. It was moved to July 25, before its most recent reschedule. It will be staged at Okada Manila.
The pageant will see 45 candidates compete for 8 crowns: Miss World Philippines, Miss Supranational Philippines, Miss Eco Philippines, Miss Eco Teen Philippines, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas, Miss Multinational Philippines, Miss Philippines Tourism, and Miss Environment International Philippines.
Aside from Metro Manila, Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte have also been placed under tighter quarantine restrictions due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in these areas. – Rappler.com
