TO SPEED UP CONTACT TRACING, SAN JUAN CITY WILL PROVIDE P3,000 COVID-19 INCENTIVES
Mayor Francis Zamora said the Local Government is providing a P3,000 incentive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients who check in to the city’s isolation facilities, speeding up contact tracing efforts.
Zamora said the move seeks to quell the fear of family breadwinners who would have to be isolated, contract the highly-contagious disease, and be unable to go to their jobs.
“We released P3,000 financial assistance for positive patients who decide to transfer to any of our 4 facilities. This incentive is to make them transfer to quarantine facilities, so that we can extract them in the community, so that they cannot infect,” Zamora said.
