Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas lauded the swift response of the Mankayan municipal government to the recent spike in coronavirus disease (COVID19) cases in the town.
This after a surge in COVID19 cases in the Lepanto mine camp.
Diclas said Mankayan’s early detection resulted in the early reduction of COVID19 cases.
He added that Mankayan’s COVID19 response should be followed by other local government units (LGU).
Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong cited the testing done by the municipal government to immediately stem the spread of COVID19.
