Mayor Isko awards P100k cash incentives to 73 barangays with no new COVID-19 cases for 2 mos

Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso announced on Monday, November 9 that no new COVID-19 cases were reported in about 73 barangays for two consecutive months, from September 1 to October 31, 2020.

As such, Domagoso said, the local government will give them P100k cash incentives in line with his incentive-based approach to containing and delaying the spread of the infection in the city.

About 12 barangays were tallied in District 1, 9 barangays in District 2, 20 barangays in District 3, 9 barangays in District 4, 10 barangays in District 5, and 13 barangays in District 3.

The awarding ceremony was held after the regular flag-raising ceremony at the Kartilya ng Katipunan.

Here are the following barangays where the MHD reported no new COVID-19 cases for two months:

District 1 barangays — 3, 8, 30, 44, 83, 87, 124, 126, 127, 139, 143, 145

District 2 barangays — 188, 217, 239, 240, 243, 244, 252, 258, 261

District 3 barangays — 268, 270, 271, 272, 273, 295, 300, 303, 306, 307, 326, 330, 332, 344, 348, 349, 362, 363, 380, 390

District 4 barangays — 446, 462, 469, 490, 501, 546, 552, 573, 577

District 5 barangays — 661, 706, 711, 716, 742, 663-A, 749, 757, 758, 795

District 6 barangays — 606, 608, 610, 613, 614, 626, 635, 647, 853, 865, 886, 891, 895

To recall, Domagoso first announced the incentive-based approach last August 31.

He said that all COVID-19 data came from the Manila Health Department (MHD) to verify whether or not the barangay recorded zero COVID-19 infection for two months.

“Ang goal natin ay zero COVID-19 infection for two months sa barangay, and I believe that you can do it. That is why we want to give you incentives,” he said.

The Mayor said that he had asked Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan for the Manila City Council to allocate the appropriate budget for the incentive-based program. Kiara Lauren Ibanez / BENJAMIN CUARESMA
