MANILA, Philippines — The Manila city government will launch a “restaurant week” to promote local food businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Mayor Isko Moreno said yesterday.

Moreno urged city residents to patronize local restaurants, food chains and carinderias.

The Manila Restaurant Week will be held from Sept. 20 to 27.

Local food businesses participating in the event must comply with minimum health standards in food preparations, Moreno said.

He also ordered vendors in 17 public markets to avail themselves of free swab tests the Sta. Ana Hospital.

This is to ensure that market goers will be kept safe from the virus, Moreno said.

He said tricycle, pedicab and jeepney drivers would be next in the priority list.
