After placing two barangays and two hotels under 4-day lockdown, Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno has ordered the distribution of food boxes to more than 2,000 affected families.

The city mayor made the directive through the city government’s COVID-19 Food Security Program (FSP) to ensure food supply for the families in areas placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

An advisory released on Tuesday stated that each food box contains three kilos of rice, 16 pieces of canned goods, and 8 sachets of coffee. The food boxes will be distributed to 1,019 families in Barangay 351; 1,109 families in Barangay 699; and 169 families in Barangay 725.

“So many were saying, ‘Hindi nga kami mamamatay sa COVID, pero mamamatay naman kami sa gutom.’ Pipilitin natin sa lungsod na walang pamilyang magugutom. Sa Maynila, kakain tayo,” Domagoso said.

The city government decided to place two barangays and two hotels under ECQ on March 10, Tuesday.

Barangay 351 logged 12 active cases, while Barangay 725 recorded 14 active cases.

Two hotels in Barangay 699 were also be placed under lockdown and were tagged as “critical zones”. Malate Bayview Mansion recorded 14 active COVID-19 cases and Hop Inn Hotel registered 3 active cases.

Mayor Domagoso has reiterated that the city will not hesitate to impose lockdowns in more areas if needed.

“The city will never think twice about [imposing a] lockdown on districts or [more] areas kung kailangan. Kaya nga hinihikayat nga natin yung ating barangay officials na ‘wag na ‘wag bibitaw sa labang ito,” Mayor Domagoso said.

The Mayor added that surge in COVID-19 cases is alarming and needs to be addressed and controlled.

“We don’t want to go back to uncertainty. That’s why the city is addressing it conservatively,” the Mayor said.

MANILA, Philippines—The Manila City government on Tuesday (February 16) unveiled a green space in Lawton dubbed as the city’s “hidden garden.”

Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso said the one-hectare garden is in line with the local government’s policy to open more green spaces in the city and will serve as a ‘gift’ to the future generation of Manileños.

“Ang inyong pamahalaang lungsod ay hindi po tumitigil sa kanyang layunin na mapanatiling maaliwalas o maging maaliwalas ang Lungsod ng Maynila, he said.

The Mayor added that he opened the garden to the public to prove that cleaner and breathable air is achievable in an urbanized city like Manila.

The garden also has its own coffee shop, which will help in generating new jobs and opportunities amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Domagoso also asked for the public’s cooperation in maintaining the cleanliness of the garden.

“We should continue to act in unison as if it is an orchestra with different musical instruments playing one music in synchrony. We must and we should deliver better services to our fellow Manileños,” he said. AAC
