Las Piñas reports six COVID-19 cases
Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar expressed disappointment in Wednesday when city residents broke social distancing to flock to the City Hall to get food packages as Luzon was placed under enhanced community quarantine.
Las Piñas City Public Information chief Jimi Castillano said Aguilar asked the Task Force COVID-19 she created to deliver the food packages to the homes of the city residents so that they need not go out anymore.
Castillano said that the food packages are good for one week.
He also said the city has recorded six persons positive for the coronavirus and they are now undergoing treatment at private hospitals, and are in stable condition.
Castillano said Aguilar has ordered extensive contact tracing of their family members as well as in the community where they live.
However, Castillano refused to identify the barangays where the victims live but said Aguilar ordered the massive misting (disinfection) around the city.
Castillano also said Aguilar provided free transportation for city frontliners by deploying four Star 8 Solar e-jeeps and coasters plying the national road in the city to ferry the city frontliners to their workplace from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Castillano said the pickup points are at Zapote (Petron) –Honda Alabang (vice versa),
Iglesia Manuyo – Zapote (vice versa), and Evia Mall Daang Hari – Honda Alabang (vice versa).
The mayor also told residents to practice social distancing while inside the vehicles.
