There are no planned lockdowns anywhere in Manila until the end of the year.
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno assured the public in his live address, as he categorically debunked social media posts claiming otherwise.
“Wala pong plano ang pamahalaang-lungsod ng Maynila na mag-lockdown hangang matapos ang December 31, 2020. I hope maliwanag,” Moreno said.
He was quick to add though, that the city government will readily implement lockdowns should there be an urgent need for it.
“[W]alang planong mag-lockdown ang pamahalaang-lungsod except kung me mangyaring hindi maganda…unless magpabaya kayo, baka mapilitan tayo,” the mayor said, as he called on Manilans to resort only to his official social media accounts and posts so as to be guided properly.
Moreno also admitted that just like everybody else, he, too, also has sleepless nights thinking of ways to lick COVID-19 and keeping the populace as safe as possible.
“Hindi rin ako makatulog dahil natatakot ako para sa inyo…na may ma-impeksyon sa inyo,” he said, assuring that the city government continues to find ways to protect its citizenry against getting infected with the coronavirus. ANDI GARCIA
