Cops hold ‘infodemic drive’ in Central Luzon
The Central Luzon police or Police Regional Office 3 began conducting this week its “infodemic drive” to spread awareness regarding the Covid-19 pandemic the provinces of Aurora, Bulacan and Nueva Ecija and in Olongapo City.
“Coronavirus Awareness Response and Empowerment (CARE) Infodemic Drive is composed of a series of socio-civic activities which aims to attain maximum information dissemination in the fight against Covid-19 through conveyance of its origin, symptoms, complications, mode of transmission, prevention and help dispel misinformation,” Regional Community Affairs Development Division Acting Chief PLtCol. Romell Velasco said in a Philippine Information Agency report.
The program was designed to teach cops about Department of Health protocols and other necessary information on Covid-19 in different police stations across Central Luzon, the report said.
The cops, in turn, will conduct similar activities to barangays within their jurisdiction.
A pilot of the barangay version of CARE was held Wednesday in the town of Maria Aurora in Aurora with about 70 mothers participating. Attendees each received grocery items after the activity.
“We saw the need to address the concern of preventing COVID-19 by reaching out to the community and ensuring that they get the most reliable, timely and accurate information they need to face the current global health crisis,” the regional director, Police Brig. Gen. Valeriano De Leon, said.
