THE Philippine National Police is implementing rotation of duty officers who are among the coronavirus disease 2019 frontliners to give them enough rest and help strengthen their immune system to battle the deadly virus.
PNP deputy chief for operations and commander of the Joint Task Force Corona Virus Shield Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar said they are regularly monitoring the health conditions of their people, especially those who are deployed to checkpoints of different municipalities and cities in Luzon.
Eleazar stressed that they have to check on them as they have families to protect from the virus.
He said they are distributing adequate food to their workforces, ensuring that they are fully protected with gear and and their health is being checked regularly, as ordered by PNP chief Gen. Archie Gamboa.
Meanwhile, Eleazar is thankful that there are no COVID-19 cases among police officers who are manning the different control points.
Eleazar noted that Luzon is becoming normal and organized compared in the first few days of the implementation of Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine.
