The provincial government of Negros Oriental has strengthened its inter-agency task force (IATF) against coronavirus to identify needed logistics, security, and committee tasking including possible worst case situation.
As chair of the task force, Gov. Roel Degamo said the creation of the IATF thru the executive order would focus in addressing the pressing crisis the country as well the province is facing on COVID 19. For the EO to be functional, the governor said the task force should perform and harmonize its efforts to contain the spread of the disease. The multi-sectoral task force committees mapped out strategies and identified necessary measures to prevent and respond to any potential epidemic in the province. (By Jennifer C. Tilos)
