The Department of Labor and Employment said Monday it aimed to complete the distribution of cash aid to 321,000 workers until April 30, the last day of a Luzon-wide lockdown to stump the novel coronavirus pandemic. 

The agency has processed the P5,000 aid application of 1.2 million workers, 264,000 of whom have received the assistance, said Undersecretary Dominique Tutay. 

The DOLE will forward all of the applications to the finance department, which will give workers P16,000 split in 2 tranches, she said.
