Hard Lockdown

The municipal government of Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte tightens checkpoints as it implemented a hard lockdown of Puroks 3, 4, 5 and 6 in Barangay Delabayan after five locally stranded individuals and one returning overseas Filipino who availed the “Balik LaNorte” program were found positive of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in confirmatory reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests. The six patients are now confined at the Old Kapatagan Provincial Hospital Annex, which is the province’s isolation and treatment facility.
