Mayor Along Malapitan of Caloocan City has issued directives to convene the members of the Caloocan City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council as a proactive measure against the looming threat of Henipavirus. Although the virus has not been reported in Caloocan City, the mayor emphasized the importance of readiness and vigilance.

Originating from Malaysia and Singapore in 1999, the Henipavirus, which includes the Nipah and Hendra viruses, made its first recorded appearance in Sultan Kudarat in 2014. Spread through the excretions or bodily fluids of bats, pigs, horses, or consumption of contaminated fruits, this virus can lead to severe conditions such as brain inflammation (encephalitis) and pneumonia.

In his statement, Mayor Malapitan reassured the residents, urging preparedness and caution despite the absence of the virus in the city. Collaborating with various departments within the local government, Caloocan remains on high alert, prioritizing the health, welfare, and safety of its citizens.
