Makati City Mayor Abigail “Abby” Binay placed on high alert all health and rescue personnel as the city moves to prevent the spread of the virus of thr 2019 novel coronavirus.

The city government said health personnel are currently using infrared thermometers to scan city employees and visitors entering City Hall as well as barangay health centers.

As such, the rescue, engineering and health personnel in the city have begun converting Makati’s Friendship Suites, initially used as a hostel, into an isolation facility for those found positive with nCov.

The City Administrator, as instructed by the mayor, has ordered all business and commercial establishments, including POGOs, to immediately submit to the city the list of all employees who have recently visited mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. The local government warned them that the business permits of those who fail to comply will be revoked.

“This global health emergency compels us to institute long-term solutions that will strengthen our capability to effectively respond to similar crises in the future. Our immediate concern now is to put in place needed systems, protocols and resources to ensure we are covering all the bases in preventing the transmission and spread of the novel coronavirus in the city,” Binay said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the mayor urged owners and management of establishments in the city, including hotels, condominiums, malls and POGOs, to cooperate with the city government in the implementation of preventive measures.

“These times demand a unified and coordinated action from all sectors. The city government appeals to all our stakeholders to cooperate and support policies and measures being undertaken to avert a health crisis in our city,” she said.

Earlier, Binay ordered the conduct of joint inspections on establishments, especially POGOs, hotels, and condominiums, to monitor the implementation of protocols and preventive measures set by the Department of Health.

The local government said that the inspection teams were led by Makati Health Department, and was supported by Business Permit and Licensing Office, Office of the Building Official, Department of Engineering and Public Works, and Assessment Department.
