A distributor of alcohol has assured that supplies will be delivered to supermarkets and groceries in Puerto Princesa and municipalities, according to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Palawan.
DTI Palawan information officer Persival Narbonita said through a text message that supplies have arrived on March 17, 2020, and will be delivered immediately as a response to the demand to prevent being infected by COVID-19.
Narbonita said supplies could last until seven days, but more are expected to arrive next week.
“Importante nito meron dumating na alcohol products this week, then meron naman next week na hinihintay na darating,” he said Wednesday in a text message.
About 400 cases will be delivered in Puerto Princesa and the towns in the northern and southern parts of Palawan.
In information shared by Narbonita, a particular distributor said that their operation will be sustained to deliver alcohol and milk supplies all over the province, including Coron island town.
One concern he cited is if the supplies will not be prevented from entering and passing through checkpoints.
Narbonita said that DTI Palawan is still waiting for updates from other alcohol distributors.
