A barangay in Caloocan City will be placed under a seven-day lockdown starting August 2 after the city’s health department reported a surge in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the area.

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

This came 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 will track down all possible virus carriers.

“Araw-araw ang ating pagmomonitor sa mga kaso ng Covid19 sa bawat barangay. Ginagawa natin ang lahat ng makakaya para mapabilis ang contact tracing upang mapigilan ang pagkalat ng virus [We’re monitoring everyday the COVID-19 cases in every barangay. We’re doing everything we can to speed up our contact tracing to prevent the spread of the virus],” Malapitan said.
