Caloocan City warned that barangays with increasing number of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases will be placed under total lockdown.

The public information office on May 27, Wednesday, said that “all barangays with increasing cases” are currently “under monitoring” and they are “subject for evaluation” for “possible total lockdown.”

This came after Mayor Oca Malapitan, in a public virtual briefing, disclosed that the local government is considering putting three more barangays under total lockdown. For now, the entire barangay 12 and portions of barangay 28 are on lockdown.


“Meron kaming pinag-aaralan ngayon na tatlong barangay pa kung kakailangan naming i-lockdown to after this [enhanced community quarantine] (We are considering placing three barangays under total lockdown even after this if necessary),” he said.

On the other hand, Malapitan said that the city is ready for the transition of Metro Manila into GCQ. He said that part of the actions they have already taken is allowing tricycle drivers to operate again so workers have means of transportation.

“Pumayag [din] kami ng kunting increase kasi medyo malulugi ang mga tricycle driver (We have allowed them to increase the fare because tricycle drivers might lose income if we did not do it),” he added.

“Nakahanda po ang pamahalaang lungsod sa darating na panahon (We’re ready for the coming days),” Malapitan said. For now, the city is currently conducting swab tests in eight “strategic places,” which include areas placed under total lockdown.

As of Wednesday, May 27, the city has already reported 484 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 111 recoveries and 35 deaths.
