Taguig City is under lockdown for 2 weeks now and Taguigenos are thriving to overcome the current crisis.
The city government makes its way to support the residents in all way they can. From giving out hundred of thousands family food packs, free service for frontliners and providing P4,000 aid for PUV drivers during quarantine.
This Friday they launched a FREE service for text and online medical consultation for its constituents. Here are the details:
Though all 31 health centers and 3 Super Health Centers remain operational, Taguig residents can now seek medical assistance from the confines of their homes, and receive medicines at their doorstep to lessen mobility during quarantine.
Through this, consultations are done online or through text. Health workers also deliver medicines to the doorsteps of the residents and medical services like immunization is also done house-to-house.
According to Mayor Lino Cayetano, the idea is to ensure people strictly do the required home quarantine, and to prevent them from congregating in areas in violation of social distancing protocols.
Telemedicine also ensures health workers are protected.
