Eastern Samar barangay delivers relief packs to PUMs

Barangay Captain Ernesto Evada of Barangay 5 in Balangkayan, Eastern Samar hands over relief food packs to a “person under monitoring” (PUM) currently observing 14-day self-quarantine on Wednesday. 

The provincial government of Eastern Samar ordered a 14-day mandatory quarantine for residents who recently traveled to areas with confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country in an attempt to prevent the spread of the disease. The province recorded 418 “persons under monitoring” and 9 “persons under investigation” with one resolved case.
