The number of barangays in Pasay City placed under the 14-day lockdown increased to 55, the city government said Tuesday night, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU) head Miko Llorac said 55 barangays have been placed under localized Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) for accumulating three or more cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The barangays are: 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, 201, 171, 7, 8, 14, 20, 26, 36, 51, 59, 65, 74, 90, 96, 99, 110, 111, 116, 131, 161, 188, 193, 194.

On Saturday, the city announced that 33 barangays and one business establishment have been placed under a 14-day lockdown.

The city said in a statement that it’s part of its “control and containment” strategy to curb the spread of the disease. The lockdown was made effective on Friday and will follow the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

Last week, City Administrator Dennis Acorda said that Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano wanted barangays with three or more cases locked down to contain the virus.

Acorda added that the Philippine National Police (PNP) and barangay officials will be augmented by members of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, the Tricycle-Pedicab Franchising and Regulatory Office, and the Traffic and Parking Management Office to enforce IATF protocols. They will be deputized to issue citations to those violating the health and safety rules.

The Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) inspection teams will also check on establishments to see if they also comply with IATF protocols.

Authorities will also be deputized in public markets to inspect stalls and enforce health protocols.

As of 8 p.m. on Tuesday, the city has a total of 435 active cases, 55 of which are new cases.

On Sunday, the OCTA Research Team said that Pasay City almost doubled its daily report of new cases compared to the previous week, having an average of 44 new cases per day.

On the other hand, the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU) said that the city had a daily average of 15 cases from October 2020 to February 2021 and 14 cases per day from January 2021 to February 2021.
