Mayor Belmonte asks for tighter health protocols amid surge in COVID-19 cases in QC

Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte has assigned the city’s health department, law and safety enforcement teams and barangays to boost their efforts in implementing all health protocols against coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Belmonte on Friday made the move as the local government has “observed that the public is becoming lax in taking COVID precautions” while “the city’s positive cases have been increasing steadily” for the past two weeks.
