Manila Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso said 172 barangays in the city have remained COVID-free since September 1.

"Nananatili pong zero ang COVID infections sa 172 na barangays sa lungsod, sana po ay ma-maintain nila ito sa pamamagitan ng pakikipagtulungan nila sa mga alituntuning ipinapatupad ng Pamahalaang Lungsod," said Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso.

To recall, Domagoso announced last August 31 that the local government will award P100,000 to any barangay with zero new COVID-19 infection until the end of October.

In this regard, Manila City Health Officer Dr. Arnold "Poks" Pangan reminded Manileños to remain vigilant as the COVID-19 virus continues to infect people inside and outside Manila, aside from aspiring to get the P100,000 cash incentive.

"Hindi po tayo dapat maging kampante. Mahalaga po na mapanatili natin ang disiplina sa ating mga sarili. Ugaliin pa rin ang paghuhugas ng kamay, pagsusuot ng mask at pag-papractice ng social distancing. Tulong-tulong po tayo sa pagsugpo sa COVID-19," noted Dr. Pangan.

Manila Barangay Bureau (MBB) Chief Romy Bagay also emphasized the importance of the city's continuous efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 through its consistent policies.

"Tuloy tuloy lang tayo sa pagpapatupad ng mga programa at panuntunan upang epektibo nating maiwasan ang paglaganap ng COVID-19 sa ating mga barangay, kabilang dito ang mga ordinansa mula sa Pamahalaang Lungsod," he said.

The department has provided assistance to the city government's mass testing and contact tracing efforts while it also led the enforcement of COVID-19 guidelines set by both the national and local government to the city's communities across its six districts.

Meanwhile, the City Government of Manila continue to intensify its COVID-19 response by conducting mass testing, improving its healthcare facilities, providing support to the medical frontliners and making sure that contact tracing is done effectively.
