Some areas of Barangay 8 in Caloocan City will be subjected to "targeted lockdown" to stem the spread of the coronavirus beginning at 11:59 p.m. from June 4 to 11:59 pm on June 11.

Only two streets will be subject to lockdown—Tupda and Salmon Streets, where most cases of COVID-19 are recorded in the barangay.

According to the latest data from the City Health Department, 23 residents from Barangay 8 tested positive from the virus, Mayor Oscar "Oca" Malapitan said.

"We want our citizens to be prepared to be affected by the targeted lockdown. We aim to prevent the ever increasing number of COVID-19 cases in their area," Mayor Oca said.

During the lockdown, the City Government will continue its mass testing and contact tracing in the area. Strict police visibility will also be maintained, according to city chief of police Col. Dario Menor.

Mayor Oca also ensures that residents under targeted lockdown will be provided with assistance. The disinfection in the area will also continue.

"Again we ask for cooperation and understanding from the citizens as we face the battle against Covid19," Mayor Oca said.
