Coronavirus cases continue to rise globally, Municipal mayor of Piat, Atty. Carmelo Villacete made similar announcement asking all people of Piat to stay indoors( home quarantine) to minimize transmission of coronavirus. Within responsibility, this is an emergency power to protect health and safety of the people. Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent COVID-19 disease and the best way to avoid being exposed to the virus is to avoid people, most often, virus spreads mainly from person to person and do transmit even in the absence of symptoms.

Causing fear and panic in Piat, in its response to the coronavirus outbreak leaving empty spaces and businesses as our town responds to concerns of the spread of COVID-19.

Empty streets in the Philippines Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

By on March 17, 2020

Yesterday, President Duterte ordered the ‘Enhanced Community Quarantine and Social Distancing of the whole of Luzon to prevent the spread of Coronavirus disease 2019 – ( COVID – 2019) Effective March 17 until April 13. The government is struggling to stop the spread of coronavirus as death toll rises and number of cases still climbing, there were checkpoints around and people movement being restricted. This is quiet good as it will slow the spread of virus.

To reduce the growth of coronavirus, cities have establishments closed, school closures, travel restrictions, temporary closure of Metro Manila Malls, work suspended for a month and public transportation are suspended but supermarkets will still remain open and ATM banks will remain operational.

Scenes Revealing the impact of Coronavirus Outbreak

As part of measures against the spread of coronavirus have left streets and public places deserted. Taken this morning along Shaw Boulevard Mandaluyong. Photo shows a normally, busy street major route, now it’s empty.

A quiet morning along Shaw Boulevard. Empty streets in Pasig avid coronavirus outbreak.

Aerial photo of Shaw Boulevard taken from the flyover in front of Capitol Commons, it looks like a ghost town.

Coronavirus poised to disrupt everyday lives of the people, a very straining and stressing disease. As we are preparing for the worst, people are rushing to stock-up food and other supplies during the Enhanced Community Quarantine. Coronavirus is causing panic buying in the Philippines. Supermarket empty shelves is already a common scene since coronavirus pandemic sparked widespread panic. Consumers stockpiling goods such as; hand sanitizer, spray cleaners and shoppers leave supermarket runs out of toilet paper. As we prepare for social distancing, which means having at least 2 weeks worth of food and supplies. It is good not to go out and be prepared all the time.

To be considerate and to prevent panic buying, City Gov’t of Pasig implemented Anti-Panic buying and Anti-Hoarding. This is an ordinance to limit buying amount of goods may purchase everyday. Anyone caught violating the ordinance will have business permit revoked and penalties to all violators. I live in Pasig around Kapitolyo , a home to business districts, schools, commercial hubs, condo communities and a short distance to Estancia Mall Capitol Commons. Thanks God! throughout our area are relatively quiet and coronavirus-free as of now.

Stay aware of the latest information. May God Bless us all and stay safe.

Goodnight !
