The city government of Cotabato is eyeing the implementation of number coding in the city amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis.
“Ang City Government of Cotabato ay wala pa pong ipapatupad na number coding. Ito ay pinag-iisipan pa lamang ng ating IATF (Inter-Agency Task Force) COVID at wala pang katiyakan kung ito ay ipapatupad sa ating lungsod,” said Mayor Frances Cynthia Guiani-Sayadi.
She said a city ordinance is needed in order to implement a number coding.
The mayor reiterated her call to the Cotabatenios to remain at home, except those frontliners, emergency reponders or workers from essential establishments.
She also warned that the Philippine National Police (PNP) will conduct random check and will arrest individuals who are not authorized to go outside.
“Tandaan, ang quarantine pass ay gagamitin lamang upang mamili ng pagkain at gamot para sa inyong pamilya at hindi lisensya para kayo ay lumabas kung saan saan sakay ng inyong pribadong sasakyan,” she said.
Guiani-Sayadi also reminded the public that disseminating fake news is punishable.
