Makati Mayor Abby Binay has decided to impose granular lockdowns on select communities with rising COVID-19 cases to prevent the virus from spreading further.

The local government recently placed H. Santos St. in Barangay Tejeros under a 14-day granular lockdown. In a Sept. 20 column for Pilipino Star Ngayon, Binay said the strict lockdown was for the greater good.

Under Makati’s granular lockdown, even individuals who needed to work cannot get out of their homes.

“Kailangang isagawa ang granular lockdown sa mga lugar na may tumataas na kaso para agad na matukoy, ma­ibukod, at magamot ang mga maysakit. Bukod sa mapipi­gilan ang pagkahawa ng ibang kasama sa bahay at komunidad, mas maaagapan din ang kondisyon ng may sakit,” Binay explained.

The mayor said families whose homes are affected by the lockdown will receive food packs, COVID home care kits, and swab testing kits.

There are also members of the Public Safety Department (PSD) deployed in the community under lockdown to run errands on the residents’ behalf.
