Biñan Government Withholds Cash Aid from Health Protocol Violators

Health Protocol Violators in Biñan Hold from Claiming Cash Aid from Government

The local government of Biñan has announced that they withhold the cash aid to be given to the health protocol violators.

Individuals who are arrested violating health rules, according to Biñan City Mayor Arman Dimaguila, will not receive cash aid from the city administration in the midst of the already financially devastating pandemic. According to Dimaguila, the city has seen an increase in virus infections as well as violations of many health norms.

According to Dimaguila, the rule was enacted because they couldn’t issue fines to residents who couldn’t afford to pay them. Those who are very obstinate will be classified individually so that they may be identified when the distribution occurs, he added.

“Hindi pwede pagmultahan ng P5,000 dahil taghirap. So ang ginawa namin is iyong talagang matigas ang ulo, talagang gumawa kaming listahan naka-record iyon so pagdating ng ayuda nila, wala kayo,” said Dimaguila.

Following the statement, some people of the specified city became concerned, particularly those who had lost their employment due to the pandemic. Cash aids, on the other hand, should not be withheld, according to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

“Mahirap ‘yun kung sasabihin: ‘o hindi na namin i-re-release yung pondo mo,’ Kasi ‘yan ay ayuda ng mga tao dahil ECQ,” DILG spokesman Jonathan Malaya said.

During the most severe lockdown, monetary help should be delivered to residents, according to the DILG. To far, there are 396 active cases in Bian City, with at least 300 people being ECQ violators. The province of Laguna is under an ECQ until August 20 to allow local government units to combat the virus’s growing spread.
