The city government has filed cases against more than 200 individuals who have violated the protocols of the community quarantine.
Angel Sumagaysay, Public Safety and Security Command Center (PSSCC) head, said that 90 cases have already been filed in court against 277 violators for defying the rules on curfew, liquor ban, and social gathering.
Sumagaysay said that on the other hand, 145 cases were also filed out of 329 apprehensions for violations in the use of food and medicine passes. Other cases have yet to be filed as these will be done through regular filing while other apprehended suspects were minors.
“We just have to follow the protocols, especially on the social distancing and wearing of mask,” he said, adding that the protocols are being strictly implemented to prevent the further spread of the virus.
The city has registered a total of 321 cases since the outbreak started. Of the figure, 192 have recovered but 30 have died. Currently, 99 cases remain active. Sumagaysay also commended the police authorities for doing their job and ensure that the protocols are strictly implemented.
“We are commending the security sector, particularly the Davao City Police Office for continued implementation of GCQ guidelines. We hope that Dabawenyos would cooperate and adhere to the guidelines (because) after all, this is for the good of our community,” he said.
