SARA | 8 in 10 new COVID cases come from 35 barangays

THIRTY-FIVE barangays in the city contributed to about 80 percent of the cases.

Mayor Sara Duterte, over Davao City Disaster Radio on Monday, said there was no discussion with the Inter-agency Task Force if the 35 barangays will be placed under granular lockdown.

“{But} it will depend on the CODE (Coordinated Operations to Defeat Epidemic) team whether I will subject to a lockdown the 35 barangays in Davao City,” she said.

Here is the list of barangays with the highest new COVID-19 cases as of Nov. 16.

Last Friday, Duterte floated the idea of implementing a granular lockdown, a term coined to emphasize that a lockdown is implemented in an area with high COVID-19 infection rate. The mayor said there are no barangays, puroks, or compounds under lockdown, except for 248 houses.

“The granular lockdown is similar to ECQ (enhanced community quarantine). In one area, whether it be a group of barangays, one barangay, or one zone, which has been identified for ECQ… Instead of the entire city, only certain areas with high cases, clustering of cases, (and) high transmission will be on lockdown,” she said.

The mayor said members of the CODE are expected to arrive in the city this week to help the government curb the spread of the virus. The city has been placed under general community quarantine until the end of next month.

The team, led by Melquiades Feliciano, deputy chief implementer of the National Task Force Against COVID-19, which also helped the cities of Bacolod and Cebu, is expected to recommend a granular lockdown or ECQ in areas where widespread transmission is observed.
