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.
