DAVAO CITY (PIA) - Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has appealed to city residents to wait as the good distribution goes on a slow pace since repacking of goods could hardly beat the distribution.

Interviewed by the Davao City Disaster Radio, she said that something must be done to double time the goods distribution which aims to serve thirty barangays per day and 182 barangays per week.

Duterte-Carpio said that an estimated number of 322,600+ families will be catered to in the goods rationing of the city.

"The distribution of ration cards is done on a house-to-house to ensure social distancing," she said.

Duterte-Carpio also assured that the region has enough supply of rice.

She said the Bureau of Customs showed her its importation inventory until April while the Department of Agriculture reported that aside from importation, rice harvest is also sure to come in the region. (PIA XI-Joey Sem G. Dalumpines)
