Various component cities in Negros Occidental have set up telephone lines dedicated to callers who have queries and concerns on the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).
Among those with Covid-19 hotlines are cities of Bago, Kabankalan, Sagay and San Carlos, whose respective public information offices are also regularly posting updates related to the disease on their social media pages.
The response supports the initiative of the provincial government, which has also set up the Capitol Covid-19 hotlines as Gov. Eugenio Lacson has ordered intensified actions to prevent the spread of the disease in the province.
