The Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan has urged municipalities to step up its implementation of minimum health protocols amid the rising COVID-19 cases in the province.

“Hinihikayat ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan ang bawat Municipal Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases sa bawat munisipyo na lalo pang paigtingin ang implementasyon ng health protocols, border control measures at disease surveillance upang makontrol at mapigilan ang pagkalat ng COVID-19 sa lalawigan,” the Provincial Government said.

The SP just passed Resolution No.178-21 entitled: “Urging all Municipal Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to strengthen the implementation of health protocols, border control measures and disease surveillance to further control the spread of COVID-19 in the Province of Palawan

The said resolution was authored by Board Member Cesareo R. Benedito, Jr.

BM Benedito said that one of the reasons of COVID-19 surge in the province is the improper way of implementing health protocols.

“Isa po sa nakikita ko doon [nabanggit ko na rin kanina] ‘yong hindi po pag-implementa nung ating health protocols sa mga bara-barangay na kung saan doon po nag-umpisa ito pong COVID-19 na ito,” said Benedicto

“Sa pamamagitan po ng panukalang ito ay para po ito maging reminder sana na kung saan dapat po talagang ipa-implementa ‘yong mga dapat gawin para mapigil ito pong pagdami ng COVID-19 dito sa lalawigan ng Palawan sa bawat bayan” he added.
