Posted to Kalinaw News (Mar 25, 2020): 4ID establishes quarantine checkpoints (By 4th Infantry Division)

CAMP EVANGELISTA, Cagayan de Oro City – The Commander of 4th Infantry “Diamond” Division, Philippine Army inspected the area of operation of Task Force Oro in their established Quarantine Control Centers (QCC)/checkpoints at the boundaries of Cagayan de Oro city early this morning, March 24, 2020.

Task Force Oro in coordination with the Police Regional Office-10 has established its QCC at strategic locations identified at the boundaries of Cagayan de Oro city in response to the imminent threat posed by CoViD-19 pandemic. Said QCC served as preventive measures to stop the spread of the virus by regulating movement of the communities considered as probable hosts of the virus.

The establishment of QCC is also in line with the PRRD’s Proclamation No. 922 “Declaring a State of Public Health Emergency throughout the Philippines” and the Executive Order 049-2020 signed by the city mayor, Hon Oscar Moreno, placing Cagayan de Oro city under community quarantine.

MGen Franco Nemesio M Gacal, Commander of 4ID, said, “We must stop the spread of this killer virus and protect our community from this epidemic. However, said QCC should not hamper the continuous flow of food and non-food items for the community during the implementation of the community quarantine.” “We should also consider the movement of essential persons authorized in addressing this situation and ensure the unhampered delivery of our basic needs,” Gacal added.

“We are experiencing a dramatic increase and acceleration of patients positively infected with CoViD-19 nationwide. Nobody is exempted from this epidemic. It is with solidarity amongst our government agencies and the community that we will emerge victorious against this CoViD-19 pandemic. Help us do our job, stay at home and observe the established health protocols,” Gacal ended.
