Cebu City conducts massive street disinfection


The city government of Cebu, which is currently under a state of enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), will conduct massive disinfection in the streets during nighttime to reduce the spread of the coronavirus disease.

The Department of Public Services headed by lawyer John Jigo Dacua was instructed to conduct the massive disinfection.

“Atty. Jigo Dacua will ensure that street disinfection will continue while the ECQ is in place,” said Mayor Edgardo Labella. (

Dacua said the city-wide disinfection will last until the state of ECQ is lifted or withdrawn.

Under Labella’s executive order, the enhanced quarantine will last until April 28, unless withdrawn by the mayor.
