(SDN) — The Moro enclave of Maharlika Village, Taguig City, Metro Manila, has joined the government’s battle against the threats of the new coronavirus disease.
Barangay Chairman Harry Pautin led the initiative as village leaders waged war against the SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen of COVID-19, the 2019-novel coronavirus which originated in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China.
Latest tally from the dashboard of Johns Hopkins University showed as March 15at 8:53 p.m., Manila time, 156,400 confirmed cases, 5,844 fatalities, and 73,968 recovered.
The World Health Organization (WHO), after being reluctant at first, relented and declared COVID-19 a global pandemic on March 11.
In Metro Manila, government agencies and private companies have enlisted in the battle against the viral menace as the “community quarantine” ordered by President Rodrigo R. Duterte took effect midnight of Sunday.
Religious structures like mosques are also being disinfected like the Blue Mosque in Maharlika Village.
Here are some photographs of the activity for the safety and health of the residents:
