The government responded to the growing COVID-19 crisis in early 2020 with a series of lockdowns with varying rules and coverage. In the Bangsamoro, the government at various levels enforced the lockdowns through curfews, checkpoints, roving patrols, and quarantine or travel passes. These were similar to the measures used to enforce martial law in Mindanao from May 2017 to December 2019, which succeeded in lowering the number of violent conflict incidents over the three-year period. They had the same effect of reducing conflicts in the region in general in 2020. However, the data also showed that these measures caused a rise in tensions and ignited cases of violence between enforcers and citizens.
