Manila placed a barangay in Pandacan district under a two-day hard lockdown starting June 1.

Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said Barangay 847 in Pandacan would undergo a hard lockdown starting 12 a.m. of June 1 until 11:59 p.m. of June 2 because of the request of its barangay chairman.

“May request ang chairman na mag-lockdown. Tiningnan namin ang datos, viable ang lockdown. Granted po ang inyong request (The chairman requested a lockdown. We looked at the data, lockdown was viable. Your request is granted),” Domagoso said via Facebook Live, in line with the signing of Executive Order No. 24 which orders the implementation of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) whenever necessary for the purposes of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) surveillance.

Domagoso said the city has to impose the measure on Barangay 847 following the recording of four new confirmed cases and six suspected cases in the area.

Its residents will not be allowed to go outside their houses for the meantime, even to buy provisions.

However, the order exempts the following: health workers, military personnel, service workers (pharmacies, drug stores, and funeral homes), utility workers (energy, cable, internet, telecommunication companies, water, sanitation, and critical transport facilities including port operation), essential workers (goods delivery, food delivery, banking and money services), barangay officials, and media practitioners accredited by the Presidential Communications Operations Office and the Inter-Agency Task Force.

“All other commercial, industrial, retail, institutional, and other activities not mentioned in the above exemptions in the district shall be suspended within the specified period of ECQ,” part of the executive order read.

“Station commanders of police stations in the said barangay are hereby directed to employ and deploy officers and personnel in strategic locations and areas necessary for the effective implementation of the ECQ,” it added.
