World Vision Relief Ops To Cagayan And Isabela Underway

World Vision continues its various relief efforts for communities in Cagayan and Isabela province that have been severely affected the recent typhoons.

Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba on Monday warned of the implementation of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in the entire province if the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases would continue to increase.

The province logged 143 new Covid-19 cases as of Sunday, 17 of whom are policemen from Enrile town.

“Seventeen police members of Enrile were positive as additional one was confirmed aside from 16 previously reported to me by the provincial health officer. Yesterday’s data was alarming for having 143 cases in a day so we warn people to observe health protocols very strictly. If cases will not mellow, I will be forced to have an ECQ in entire Cagayan,” Mamba said.

“Now we have the bulk in Tuguegarao City and Enrile with 58 and 57 cases, respectively, aside from cases in other towns. It is alarming,” he said.

It was learned that two Enrile policemen (CV 2274 and 2287) tested positive for coronavirus and had infected 15 of their co-workers.

Meanwhile, Enrile Mayor Miguel Decena Jr. has transferred the distribution of travel passes and Covid Shield passes to the New Enrile Public Market-Office of the Market Supervisor following the spike of cases at the police station and town hall where the documents were earlier distributed. “Health certificates and other travel documents shall also be facilitated in the said office,” he said.

Decena has also ordered the extension of liquor ban, which should have been lifted last October 16 if not for the spike of cases, until November 5.

“It has been observed that selling or serving and consumption of liquors and other similar alcoholic drinks encourage close contact among people, thereby defeating the objectives of the community quarantine,” he said.

The mayor has also extended the lockdowns in Centro and Magalalag East in Enrile town while contact tracing and coronavirus containment efforts have been intensified. The other barangays have been under modified ECQ. (PNA)
