BREAKING: Narra Mayor Gerandy Danao has denied a report circulating on social media (not Palawan News) stating that the municipality has imposed a lockdown of the town’s Osmeña Avenue section, reportedly because two female local residents had a direct contact with the Australian national recently confirmed by DoH tests to be positive for COVID-19 .
“Wala pang ganoong report. Huwag naman po sana silang maniwala sa mga ganyang report. Hindi pa nga po nakakapag-report sila doktora na may ganyang report sa MDR at sa Ospital,” Mayor Danao told Palawan News.
Raymund Dela Rosa, who heads Narra’s Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, told Palawan News they only conducted verification on the report as a standard procedure.
“Automatic naman na kapag may mga ganyan kailangan nating imbestigahan. Precautionary measures lang natin ‘yon, naka personal protective equipment ang ating mga tao kasi protection nila yon. Nagsabi agad sila ng lockdown pero hindi tayo naglockdown,” dela Rosa said.
