Gandamra belies report on lockdown in Marawi


MARAWI CITY: The city mayor of the Islamic city of Marawi has belied reports that there will be a lockdown in this southern Islamic city even as authorities are implementing their mandates in connection with the extended Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

Mayor Majul U. Gandamra said on Sunday in the local government unit’s official Facebook account that there is no truth about a report circulating in social media that Marawi shall have a lockdown.

Posts about placing the city to a lockdown went viral in local social media due to residents’ indiscipline for not following ECQ regulations on social distancing, on bringing quarantine passes and wearing of face masks.

Gndamra said, “All authorized establishments like grocery stores, drugstores, hospitals, banks, money remittance centers and markets in Barangay Luksadatu, Sagonsongan and Patani continue to operate for consumers in need of basic commodities.”

Other temporary markets, however, are not allowed to operate for the time being, he added.

The mayor advised all residents not to easily believe on information that do not come from authorized persons or agencies

He said for updates about the situation in the locality, they should connect to the official account of the city government on Facebook or tune in at Radio Dansalan. (RSP)
