Iloilo levels up campaign vs COVID-19

The Iloilo Provincial Government is scaling up its campaign against COVID-19 by purchasing infrared thermometers [3]. Iloilo’s health office is currently looking for suppliers of the equipment which will be used in ports and other areas of entry to the province. The infrared thermometer will be used to check the temperature of people entering Iloilo. Ship passengers going to the city are also ordered to fill out health declaration cards to check if they have symptoms of COVID-19 or have recent travel history in countries covered by the travel ban.

No big events in the city

Expect no crowded events in the city again this month as precautionary measures against COVID-19 still continue [4]. Just recently, the city government canceled the yearly sailing event, Iloilo Paraw Regatta. Authorities continue to advise locals and residents to avoid crowded places especially when they have fever, cough and colds, which are among the apparent symptoms of COVID-19.
