Posts Tagged ‘Mayor Atty. Kit Nieto’


I thought I’ll give you a preview  on our daily lives here in our small town. Present total population is around 370,000.  Since the enhanced community quarantine, all  of us are just confined here, no border crossing, there are so many checkpoints in the metropolis. I much prefer to call it a lock down. We have our own curfew here at the subdivision where I live. The gates are only open from 5-10am then at 2-6pm. Nationwide curfew starts at 8pm to 5am the following day. We have quarantine passes, one in each household because only one is allowed to go out to buy necessities, food and medicines. Sometimes we make use of Grab  and Lalamove though for those food delivery but of course they are so expensive but they can travel to other towns and cities in Metro Manila.

I can’t remember now how many times  I’ve blogged about our third-termer Mayor – Mayor Atty. Kit Nieto. He is really good and he is even proving himself more responsible, decisive and really after the welfare of his constituents. Cainta is lucky to have him around.

Yesterday, I received three food packs from the municipal’s office thru our volunteer workers here in our subdivision. I think this is the fifth tranche since this lock down started. There are so many people contributing cash and food items to our Mayor and he in turn buys groceries, distributes the food items (some even cooked food)   to all areas of our town.  Priorities of course goes to those who badly need financial assistance. There is this  SAP (Social  Amelioration Fund) implemented by the national government but then there are so many exemptions and those qualified to receive it are finding it hard  because those who were tasked to distribute it have different guidelines that they follow. My goodness, the people are hungry especially those living in the squatter areas.  Compare it to those countries who take care of all their citizens, this government is sadly lacking. Sometimes, those soldiers assigned  to some checkpoints are abusive.

Going back to Mayor Kit Nieto, for the 15th day now he’s been auctioning off his collection of shoes to raise funds for those who were temporarily out of work  due to this lockdown, and because they were not qualified to receive SAP. He was able to garner P977,750.00 in cash for all those shoes sold, three pairs each day in the last fourteen days.

Got this from Mayor Kit’s site at FB posted today.

Cainta had 90 confirmed cases of  COVID-19 and out of it, 12 died, 21 have fully recovered, 6 are under quarantine, and the rest are quarantined at home waiting for their fourth and fifth swab. All in all 57 patients are being monitored. They are preparing for teleconferencing with five doctors using an online facility that will start by Friday.

I started gardening yesterday morning. I am half-way through trimming the carabao grass.  How are you all?

Yesterday, we just had a confirmed case positive of NCov19  here in our town, the fifth one according to Dept. of Health (DOH). I wonder  if they are telling the truth or hiding something so as not to create panic or offend their big boss who said a few weeks ago that “this too will pass”. There is something not right.

Even if the place is quite far from us, I am still wary of public places where there are so many people. Reports say that the patient has no history of travel but regularly visited the mosque at Greenhills, San Juan City. He is now confined at RITM (Research Institute for Tropical Medicine).

Our town mayor, Mayor Atty. Kit Nieto has posted this message on his Facebook page a few minutes ago:

“I am constrained to suspend classes in all levels both public and private from today (assuming there are) until Tuesday to provide ample opportunity for the general services office to distribute additional masks on top of the 50,000 pieces we have already distributed a couple of weeks ago.. all cainta students will be provided face masks and protective sanitizers and vitamin c to mitigate the probabilities of the virus spreading.. more directives to come.. all trike drivers. And puj drivers are likewise directed to wear masks while plying their routes.. GSO Lyndon Camacho Batanes procure what is necessary should the resources be inadequate”.

With his health team, he visited those places close to the patient to distribute face masks, disinfectant and vitamin C  and letters telling them of the latest news by DOH.  Good thing our town mayor is proactive. It might be hard to contain this virus when it spreads but at least the people are aware of what to do. Salute Mayor Nieto 🙂

 It’s now code RED for DOH, his wife was also tested positive.
