The City Council expressed its gratitude to healthcare workers, men in uniform, barangay officials, and all frontliners for their contributions during the fight against COVID-19.
In a resolution passed during the 12th regular session last Tuesday, Councilor Jessica Bonguyan-Galope said it is crucial to protect the welfare of the people as indicated in Sec. 15, Article II of the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
To protect the people and to mitigate the virus, the government has imposed home quarantine protocols, yet some establishments providing basic necessities and essential services cannot be halted.
Among these are medical professionals, law enforcers, barangay officials and auxiliaries, and other members of the skeletal force who provide the needs of the citizens during the pandemic, thus making them vulnerable to the virus.
“Such selfless act(s) should not be overlooked and deserved to be commended. Without our healthcare workers, men in uniform, barangay officials and all frontliners, winning our battle against the COVID-19 threat would be impossible,” the resolution said.
Councilor Danny Dayanghirang concurred with the resolution, mentioning his wife who is a doctor and the risks that medical professionals face during the pandemic.
