However, Belmonte said this will still be subjected to daily review depending on the number of cases/recoveries.

She noted the newly reported barangays with two cases have not yet been included in the list as they are still undergoing validation.

As of 7 p.m. of April 21, the Quezon City government is currently implementing EECQ in the following barangays:

Tandang Sora, Kalusugan, Ramon Magsaysay, Maharlika, Tatalon, Batasan Hills, Pasong Tamo, Central, San Roque, Paligsahan, Bagong Lipunan ng Crame, South Triangle, Culiat, Bahay Toro, E.

Hope 2 as of April 21 has 215 rooms/beds with 149 now being used by confirmed and suspected COVID-19 patients, while 68 beds are still available.

Those who have been tested in the city’s community-based testing center are brought to Hope 2 for self isolation while waiting for their results.

Community-based testing

On April 21, 167 swab tests were conducted in the city’s community-based testing centers, local government hospitals, and by the QCESU.

Of the 167 tests, 18 were done in Quezon City General Hospital, 24 in Novaliches District Hospital, 22 in Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital, 27 at the Quezon Memorial Circle, 27 in SB Park Novaliches, 23 at the Asian Institute of Tourism, and 26 by the QCESU.

The city government has awarded financial aid to those whose livelihoods were affected by the ECQ.

Quarantine violators

At 5 p.m. of April 21, 91 individuals were nabbed for violating ECQ protocols.

Social Amelioration Program

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the city government have started distributing financial support to qualified local residents through the social amelioration program.

Belmonte encouraged local residents to email the city government at [email protected] if they have concerns regarding the program.

2 million food packs

The city government has distributed more than two million food packs, excluding those that were given by the 142 barangays to the distressed residents during the quarantine period.

From an initial count of 500,000 food packs, Belmonte opted to increase the allocation to 950,000 food packs, to provide to more households in the informal sector, street dwellers, renters, and people stranded in the city.

She reminded those who have not received their food packs to coordinate directly with their respective barangays.
