The municipal government of Sadanga said that lockdowns and mandatory 14-day quarantine is an “inappropriate community response” to the coronavirus disease (COVID19) pandemic.
In a statement, the Municipal Inter-Agency Task Force (MIATF) of Sadanga said COVID19 is “just a new form of colds (sic).”
The Sadanga MIATF explained that lockdowns or quarantines “paralyzes the economic, social, culture and other aspects of life of the whole community.”
“Instead, let us focus our response to the management and care of the person infected according to the severity or health situation of the patient,” it stated.
“But we must allow the community to go on with their usual daily normal life activities,” it added.
