MARAWI CITY, Apr 15 (PIA) — The provincial government of Lanao del Sur (PLGU LDS) has converted its housing project for provincial employees into a  quarantine facility in preparation for an increase of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases in the province.

Forty-six (46) newly constructed housing units at Purok Badak in Barangay Emie Punod in Marawi City will be utilized for COVID-19 patients or suspects in the city and province.

“This is a temporary shelter for the employees from the provincial capitol which will be temporarily used as community quarantine facility,” said Governor Mamintal “Bombit” Alonto Adiong, Jr. in Maranao in a video posted by Provincial Government of Lanao del Sur Facebook page.
