MANILA, Philippines – Isasailalim ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Caloocan sa lockdown ang Kingstown 2 at Queensville sa Barangay 171 simula 12:01 ng umaga ng Lunes (March 22) hanggang 11:59 ng gabi ng Linggo (March 28).

Ayon kay Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan, ang ipatutupad na lockdown ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ay bunsod ng patuloy na pagtaas ng mga kaso ng COVID-19 sa lugar.

“Kailangan muna nating limitahan ang galaw ng mga residente sa dalawang subdivision upang hindi na lumaganap ang sakit,” pahayag ng alkalde.

“Sa loob ng pitong araw na lockdown ay magsasagawa tayo ng mass testing, misting at disinfecting operations,” dagdag nito.

Mamamahagi naman ng food boxes ang mga Pamahalaang Lungsod sa mga bahay kung kaya’t inaabisuhan ang mga residente na maglagay ng mga upuan labas ng kanilang tahanan upang mapaglagyan ng kanilang food box.

Sa kasalukuyan ay mayroong 15 kaso ng COVID-19 sa Queensville at Kingstown 2 habang may kabuuang bilang na 61 active cases naman ang Barangay 171.

The Mayor reminds all residents of concerned barangays to remain indoors and submit to swab testing.

“Sinumang magpositibo ay dadalhin agad sa community isolation facility. Bibigyan din ng relief packs ang mga pamilyang apektado,” he said.

Meanwhile, essential workers in areas under lockdown will be allowed to go out until August 5 provided that they have not been in close contact with a positive case.

They will be required to present a valid company ID, certificate of employment, or a business or permit from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
