Caloocan Mayor Along Malapitan has directed the City Health Department to intensify cooperation with barangays to help spread awareness and knowledge about monkeypox to residents.
Malapitan gave the directive as the City Health Department held an orientation for doctors about this new disease.
He also appealed to Caloocan residents to take precautions against monkeypox as well as COVID-19.
“Mga Batang Kankaloo, huwag po nating ipagsawalang-bahala ang monkey pox at maging ang COVID-19. Patuloy po tayong mag-ingat at panatilihin ang kalinisan upang makaiwas sa mga sakit,” Malapitan said.
