The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has put up a disinfection system at its office in Makati City.

Before anyone can enter the premises, he or she has to pass through a sanitized area adjacent to the main door of the MMDA office.

Anyone who passes through will have to make a 360-degree turn while disinfectant mist is being sprayed.

Before exiting the area, a person has to dip his/her shoes in a foot bath.

MMDA personnel will thereafter check the body temperature of guests and employees using a thermometer.

On Saturday morning, Metro Manila Mayors attended a meeting together with officials of the MMDA and the Department of the Interior and Local Government to discuss the details of the NCR community quarantine which will take effect midnight of March 15.

Makati City Mayor Abby Binay was seen undergoing the same disinfection process along with other Metro Manila mayors and MMDA and DILG officials as well before they proceeded to the meeting.

As of Friday, the Department of Health said the number of COVID-19 cases in the country has reached 64.

Six people have died in the country due to COVID-19, with the latest fatality in Cagayan de Oro City on Friday.
