Just as the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) for Metro Manila is about to take effect for two weeks, the Manila Bulletin reported recently that Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar asked the local residents for their full cooperation in the fight against the highly infectious Delta variant which has been confirmed by the Department of Health (DOH) previously. Already there are thirteen Delta variant cases in the city according to another report by the Manila Bulletin.
To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Las Piñas City constituents report of the Manila Bulletin. Some parts in boldface…
Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar has appealed for full cooperation of the residents in the implementation of health and safety measures against the spread of COVID-19 Delta variant.
Aguilar is also reminding the residents to report immediately to the City Health Office (CHO) once they have symptoms of COVID-19 so they could be given proper attention.
She said the city government is also constantly posting in its official Facebook page the health protocols that should be followed to prevent the spread of the virus.
The mayor also asked the residents to register at the city government’s “Ligtas na Las Piñero, Lahat Bakunado” vaccination program to protect themselves from any harm brought about by the virus.
Aguilar ordered the CHO to strictly implement the prevent, detect, isolate, treatment and reintegration (DPITR) plus vaccination program to keep Las Pineros free from the virus.
She said persons with symptoms of COVID-19 must give their true identities to the CHO or immediately ask the intervention of health experts once they have exposure to COVID-19 patients.
The above report ended stating that Mayor Aguilar said that city hospitals were asked to upgrade their bed capacity and increase their logistical needs at their isolation facilities in preparation for a possible Delta variant cases surge.
It should be noted that as of July 29, 2021, almost 430,000 people got vaccinated in the city. Almost 187,000 of those were fully vaccinated (2 doses). Already the national government confirmed it will supply Metro Manila local government units (LGUs) with 4,000,000 vaccine doses in connection with ECQ.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a resident of Las Piñas, are you still moving around the city using public transportation knowing that there are already thirteen Delta variant cases? Do you think that the 2-week ECQ will disrupt your career?
