Camalig still provides food for COVID-hit residents
The Camalig local government has continued to provide food and relief aid to residents who tested positive for COVID-19.
The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Office (MDRRMO) leads the distribution of food packs to families or close contacts of the town’s active Coronavirus (COVID-19) positive cases.
“As one measure in preventing possible transmission of COVID-19 to the community, the close contacts are directed to stay isolated for at least fourteen days,” the Camalig Public Information Office said.
“The provision of goods aims to cater the basic needs of the close contacts throughout the quarantining/isolation period,” it added.
The Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams activated in the three affected barangays regularly monitor the close contacts, subject for assessment by the Municipal Health Emergency Response Team.
To date, the municipality has 737 confirmed COVID-19 cases including 689 recoveries, 44 deaths, and 4 currently active.
