Caloocan barangay on lockdown starting Sunday

A barangay in Caloocan City will be placed under a seven-day lockdown starting Sunday after the city’s health department reported a sudden rise of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the area.

Residents of Barangay 132, except for workers, will not be allowed to go outside their houses until 11:59 p.m. of August 8, based on the decision made by Mayor Oca Malapitan following an emergency meeting.

This came about after the city’s health department reported 36 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the area.

The local government assured the residents that relief packs will be distributed while the city’s contact tracing team is tracking down all possible virus carriers.

“Araw-araw ang ating pagmomonitor sa mga kaso ng COVID-19 sa bawat barangay. Ginagawa natin ang lahat ng makakaya para mapabilis ang contact tracing upang mapigilan ang pagkalat ng virus,” Malapitan said. (Joseph Pedrajas)
