Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar has ordered the strict implementation of prevent-detect-isolate-treat and reintegrate (PDITR) to ensure that the new Delta variant will not spread in the city.

According to Paul San Miguel, Public Information chief, Aguilar ordered that residents who show symptoms of COVID-19 must be isolated in one facilities while asymptomatic patients should be placed in other isolation facilities.

San Miguel said the Aguilar’s order came after the Department of Health (DOH) confirmed that the more transmissible Delta variant has entered the country.

He said the mayor wants to prevent the spread of the virus in the city and continues to appeal to residents to observe the basic health protocols like the wearing of face mask and face shield and observing physical distancing.

The mayor also encourages all residents to be part of the city government’s “Ligtas na Las Piñero, Lahat Bakunado” vaccination program for their protection against the virus.
