Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has ordered a 24-hour TOTAL SHUTDOWN of Barangay 20 upon learning that residents have been conducting leisure activities such as boxing and bingo.
Barangay residents now face immense risk of exposure to COVID-19, he said.
Because residents have blatantly defied the government’s order to observe physical distancing protocols, the Mayor has immediately ordered disease surveillance, testing and rapid risk assessment operations in the barangay.
Under Executive Order No. 19, the barangay will be placed under a total shutdown from 8:00 pm on April 14, 2020 until 8:00 pm on April 15, 2020.
