0

The city government of Valenzuela has cancelled the concert scheduled on February 22 as a safety precaution against the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The concert, titled “Konsyerto Para Sa Kabataang Valenzuelano,” was part of activities organized to mark Valenzuela’s 22nd charter day.

Mayor Rex Gatchalian expressed dismay at the cancellation of the concert as he shared the announcement on Twitter.

“Eto pa naman yung matagal na namin plinaplano na concert…part 2 ng last year,” he said.

Several local government units have stepped up precautionary measures against the 2019-nCoV, which has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization.

Three cases have been confirmed so far in the Philippines.
