0

Mayor Pedro Zayco temporarily closed the city hall of Kabankalan in Negros Occidental following seven confirmed coronavirus (Covid-19) cases at the City Engineer’s Office (CEO).

The three-day closure paves the way for disinfecting of the building, said Zayco.

The patients, he added, had exposure to an infected engineer who died last week. They were all quarantined. (https://bit.ly/2IXamBi)
