The Davao City government has filed charges against over 200 persons who have violated the protocols of the community quarantine.

Public Safety and Security Command Center (PSSCC) head Angel Sumagaysay said that 90 cases had already been filed in court against 277 violators for defying the rules on curfew, liquor ban, and social gathering.

Sumagaysay said that on the other hand, 145 cases had also been filed out of the 329 apprehensions for violations of the Food and Medicine Pass (FM Pass).

Other cases are yet to be filed as these will be done through regular filing while other apprehended suspects are minors.

“We just have to follow the protocols, especially on the social distancing and wearing of mask,” he said.

Sumagaysay said the protocols are being strictly implemented to prevent the further spread of the virus.

The city has registered a total of 321 cases since the outbreak started. Of the figure, 192 have recovered but 30 have died. Currently, 99 cases remain active.

Sumagaysay also commended the police authorities for doing their job and ensure that the protocols are strictly implemented.

“We are commending the security sector, particularly the Davao City Police Office for continued implementation of GCQ guidelines. We hope that Dabawenyos would cooperate and adhere to the guidelines (because) after all, this is for the good of our community,” he said. CIO
