Due to the imminent threat of the Pandemic which is COVID-19, the cooperatives in Paranaque Fisherman’s Wharf otherwise known as “Bulungan” routinely conducts disinfection of their surroundings. Spearheaded by the Paranaque Fish Traders Multi-Purpose Cooperative together with UMSCPFW, they regularly disinfect the area every after operating hours. Likewise, to adhere with DENR, CENRO and City Health Office, they also conduct at least twice a week flushing of the Bulungan. According to Ms. Ning Eusebio “Because the operation of PFW Cooperatives is primarily concentrated to agriculture-fish products, and is essential to the needs of the people, it is our social responsibility to heed and adhere with the government’s call to fight COVID-19 by doing these activities just to ensure the safeness and cleanliness of products being transported to PFW.” While ensuring the continuous operation of fish and shellfish trading, the cooperatives strictly follow the guidelines set forth by the IATF in serving the general public and their members.
