Business leader Frank Carbon is asking local government units in Negros Occidental to give “extra attention” to public spaces that could be sources of coronavirus disease.
Carbon, chief executive officer of the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said there is a “big possibility” that the local transmission came from public markets, terminals, banks, business process outsourcing, and offices as these areas are crowded, frequently visited, with no social distancing, and that not everyone wears face masks and shields.

BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
Consumers’ group Power Watch Negros Advocates Inc. is urging the Central Negros Electric Cooperative to suspend its disconnection services until the end of December.
In a letter dated September 2 addressed to Dwight Carbon, Ceneco president, Wennie Sancho, secretary-general of Power Watch, said that everybody is facing multifarious problems brought by economic recessions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“As a result, thousands of workers were laid off from their jobs due to the closure of hundreds of business establishments suffering from economic losses,” he said.
