Personnel from the City Health Office, City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and CEED carried out the sanitation of the City Public Market and City Port.

Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, Chairperson of Inter-Agency Task Force COVID-19, said that places where members of the public would usually converge or frequent must be continuously sanitatized to kill the virus.

The Task Force has also carried out the disinfection of the hospitals, plazas, churches, city hall compound and other public areas.

Contrary to some rumors, City Economic Enterprise Department head Engr. Ronnie Fortin clarifies that the public market will remain open and continue to serve the public.

It should be noted that the COVID-19 patient, who died today, is not a resident of Dumaguete City but rather of Tayasan town some 2 hours away north of the province.
