At least 34 barangays and one establishment in Pasay City have been placed under localized lockdowns since Friday after the local government recorded a sudden surge of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases, a city official said in  a report by Philippine News Agency.

Pasay City Administrator Dennis Acorda said the lockdown in 33 villages was made effective on Feb. 19 and will end on March 5.

"Hangga’t makakayanan hindi po namin nila-lockdown ang buong barangay (As much as possible, we are not placing the whole barangay under lockdown), we zero in on the household or particular family na apektado (those affected)," Acorda said in an interview at the ABS-CBN's Teleradyo.

The areas under lockdown are Barangays 28, 29, 32,40, 57, 58, 66, 68, 71, 76, 81, 95, 98, 100, 107, 109, 118, 122, 132, 135, 136,143, 155, 156, 159, 162, 175, 177, 178, 183, 190, 192, and 201.

Another village was placed on lockdown last Sunday, Feb 21 that will end after a 14-day quarantine period.

The residents in the lockdown areas are not allowed to go out and should follow strict quarantine measures and guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

Those asymptomatic residents were transferred to the city's quarantine facilities for proper isolation and treatment. They will also undergo swab testing for Covid-19.

Acorda said the affected residents will receive food assistance from the local government during the localized lockdown.

The city government reported a total of 7,594 confirmed Covid-19 cases with 361 active cases as of Feb. 21.

Pasay residents are urged to continue adhering to the minimum health standards to prevent another surge of Covid-19 cases.
