TACLOBAN CITY—The provincial government of Eastern Samar will provide a P1,000 cash incentive to each member of the barangay health emergency response teams (BHERTs).

“This assistance aims to provide financial relief to local health and emergency workers who have been in the forefront in fighting the spread of coronavirus in the province since the start of the pandemic last year,” Evardone said in a statement.

He instructed all concerned offices to expedite the processing of the payrolls to avoid unnecessary delays in the distribution of the cash aid.
