The city government here has partnered with the private sector in producing an official video that promotes proper health protocols to prevent spread of coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

Mayor Edgardo Labella on Thursday posted the video on his Facebook page, featuring millennial twins singing the song “Igsuon Ko” (My Sister/Brother).

Also appearing in the video are Yvonne Feliciano, Cebu City Medical Center administrator, and Anton Reposar, the city hospital’s medical director.

“I am inspired by my fellow Cebuanos who continue to act responsibly in this pandemic and are vocal about following the proper health protocols,” Labella said in a statement posted along with the video, as he thanked the netizens for the positive acceptance of the social media campaign.

In the video, the social media influencers called the FabeTwins implored the Cebuanos not to forget the basic health standards such as washing of hands and maintaining physical distance with other people when in public.

The song in the video also pressed the Cebuanos not to be complacent and to be always vigilant to make sure they are safe from the coronavirus.

It also promoted the importance of taking a bath immediately after arriving home from making important transactions outside.

If there is no necessary business outside the home, the video prodded the viewers to stay inside the house to prevent contracting coronavirus.

“This is the Sugbuanon spirit. Now more than ever, we must take good care of those around us, as we would our family. Let’s continue to spread this message,” Labella said.

He thanked the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Kadasig, a group that promotes Visayan songs and helps Cebuano songwriters.

Lawyer Rey Gealon, Labella’s spokesperson, told the Philippine News Agency that the city has embraced a lighter mood in encouraging the people to adhere to the health protocols while transitioning to a less strict quarantine classification.

“We have our front-liners to draw inspiration from. The medical professionals who engage the unseen enemy head-on, to the men and women in uniform patrolling the streets to enforce order, we surely remember them as heroes,” Gealon said.

The city is expecting to graduate from modified general community quarantine on October 1. (PNA)
