Mati City Mayor Michelle N. Rabat has approved the proposed P140 million for the 2022 Covid-19 Response and Preparedness Budget (Covid-19 RPB).
The city government said the Covid-19 RPB will be sourced from the annual budget allocation of the different offices like the City Health Office (CHO), City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO), City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), the City Mayor’s Office (CMO), and other offices.
The City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council suggested the amount during a recent meeting.
For this year, the city government has already spent P89 million for the Covid-19 RPB. Of the amount, P72 million came from the CHO, CDRRMO and CSWDO while the P17 million came from the CMO for the ongoing construction of 17 Barangay isolation units that would serve as disease surveillance stations in 17 barangays.
