Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 9) — Taguig City on Thursday warned its residents, particularly those living in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), against doing outdoor fitness and leisure activities while the Luzon-wide lockdown is in place.

Mayor Lino Cayetano said photos, videos, and reports indicate that residents are still jogging in public at a time when outdoor activities are strictly limited to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

"Mayor Lino cautioned violators that this will be their last and final warning. Authorities will not hesitate to arrest violators next time around," the local government said in a statement. 

Police officers in Taguig have started arresting violators in BGC and have charged 15 individuals, including foreigners. Over 500 people have already been apprehended in Taguig.

The city has recorded 132 confirmed COVID-19 cases, with 33 coming from Barangay Fort Bonifacio, as of April 5.
