The Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Monday warned the public about criminals taking advantage of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation in the country.
In an advisory posted on Facebook, the agency said "there are no groups authorized by the government to sanitize homes."
“Kindly inform all family and friends not to open the door to any person or group claiming to be in charge of any party to sanitize homes from the virus,” PNA said.
PNA’s advisory came after the government’s announcement of the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.
The quarantine period takes effect on March 17 and will be implemented until April 12. --Jannielyn Bigtas/MGP, GMA News
