Inatasan ng Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) ang mga lokal na pamahalaan ng Kalakhang Maynila na idulog ang mga mild at asymptomatic na pasyente sa mga Oplan Kalinga hotels at quarantine facilities kung puno na ang kanilang isolation facilities, sapagka’t mayroon nang 4,000 bakanteng mga kama mula nang tumaas ang bilang ng mga gumaling at nakalabas na mula sa mga pasilidad nitong mga nakaraang linggo.
Ayon kay DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año , ito ay naaayon sa IATF Resolution No. 74 na nag-aatas na i-isolate ang mga pasyenteng mild o asymptomatic sa mga pasilidad na aprubado ng gobyerno, maliban na lang sa mga vulnerable o may comorbidities ayon sa sertipikasyon ng isang...
The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is enjoining all Metro Manila local government units (LGUs) to endorse mild and asymptomatic patients to Oplan Kalinga hotels and quarantine facilities if their local isolation facilities are already full since there are 4,000 beds now available due to the increase in discharges or recoveries in the past weeks.
DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said that this is compliance with IATF Resolution No. 74 where all confirmed mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients are now required to isolate in government-approved facilities, except those who are vulnerable or have comorbidities as certified by a local health officer.
Dalawampu’t isang Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) na laboratoryong pinatatakbo ng mga local government units ang binuksan na at tumutugon sa mga pangangailangan ng kanilang mga nasasakupan at pinabubuti ang pambansang kakayahan para magsuri ng COVID-19.
Masayang tinanggap ni Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo M. Año ang balitang ito at binati ang mga local chief executives na nasa lilkod nito. “Noon, Marikina lamang ang may RT-PCR laboratory. Ngayon mayroon na tayong 21 sa buong bansa at marami pang susunod. "Ipinagmamalaki ko ang mga LGUs na pumasa sa mahigpit na licensing procedure ng DOH,” ani Año.
Following reports that unscrupulous individuals have been posing as Contact Tracers, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) 10 urged the public anew to be vigilant as these posers aim to extract personal information, such as bank accounts and credit card details from target victims.

“We need the full support of our local government units in informing their constituents to be wary of individuals pretending to be Contact Tracers to take advantage...
