CAPAS Mayor Reynaldo L. Catacutan has reversed his stance on the use of the Athletes Village at the New Clark City (NCC), located in his town, as quarantine site for Filipinos repatriated from Wuhan, the center of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. In a statement posted on social media Sunday, he apologized for the local government’s opposition to the plan. Last Friday, the Capas municipal council passed a resolution expressing their opposition, citing threat of contamination among residents. “Now that the national government has finally decided to use Capas as the quarantine area for our returning kababayans (fellow-Filipinos), Capas can only move forward and throw its all-out-support to this nationally-led endeavour,” Mr. Catacutan said. — Gillian M.
