‘Wag pasaway! Len Len Oreta explains why IATF enforcers are strict in enforcing quarantine protocols
Malabon Mayor Len Len Oreta expressed dismay over reports that enforcers from the IATF-Quick Response Team apprehended several violators of health protocols as Metro Manila remains under enhanced community quarantine.
In a Facebook post, Oreta said authorities caught some residents without face masks, while there were also minors outside their homes and people going out for non-essential activities.
The mayor appealed to residents to understand why IATF team members had to be strict in enforcing community quarantine protools.
“Hiling namin ang pang-unawa ninyo dahil ang lahat ng pagsita na ito ay para rin sa kaligtasan ng ating kapwa. Maiiwasan ang lalong pagkalat ng COVID-19 kung walang magpapahawa,” he said.
“’Wag na sana nating hintayin na mapatawan muna tayo ng multa at parusa bago sumunod sa awtoridad,” Oreta added.
