Marikina Mayor Marcy Teodoro ordered the massive disinfection of public places after a coronavirus disease 2019 case was confirmed in the city.

Teodoro said all public places should be disinfected after an 86-year-old American living in Marikina, who recently traveled to South Korea, tested positive for COVID-19.

Teodoro said the ninth patient came back to the country last February 19 and was first diagnosed with pneumonia. He is confined in an isolation room inside a private hospital in Pasig City.

The patient's relatives are already under quarantine, while the people he came in contact with are currently being traced, Teodoro added.

The local government of Marikina already formed a barangay emergency response team who will be in charge of monitoring people with respiratory illness symptoms in the area.

Residents were also briefed on how to wear protective equipment properly.

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier said four new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the country, bringing the total number to 24.

He also declared a state of public health emergency throughout the country due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases.
