Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan has ordered the police to be more vigilant in monitoring gatherings due to the threat of the COVID-19 Delta variant.

“Lahat ng mga gatherings tingnan at imbestigahan agad, una, kung mayroong permit. Pangalawa, tingnan ‘yung lugar kung safe. Actually, wala nang safe ngayon dahil nariyan lang palagi ang banta ng Covid-19, kaya kailangang i-monitor lahat ng mga barangay,” he said on Monday, July 20.

Malapitan said he met with other Metro Manila mayors, the Department of Health and the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) on how to minimize the risk of the Delta variant’s spread.

“Pumasok na ang Delta variant sa NCR, mayroon na sa ibang mga lungsod,” he warned.

The mayor said he will meet with barangay captains in Caloocan to check on their implementation of IATF guidelines.
