Treñas to give P50K reward to brgys with no COVID cases


Barangays with zero new coronavirus (Covid-19) cases for the entire month of December will get a reward of P50,000, Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas said.

“This is to inspire city barangays to protect their communities,” according to Treñas.

The mayor said it is imperative to motivate barangays in their fight against Covid-19 by providing them with incentives, which can also serve as assistance in maximizing their response. (

The city government will team up with the Department of Health to verify if a barangay tallied zero cases by the end of December before it could claim the incentive.

Iloilo is made of 180 barangays – 109 of which were able to record confirmed Covid-19 infections, latest data from the city government showed.

The city has 149 active cases as of November 26.
