According to the local government of Baguio, the Rat Catching Challenge will last for a month and will be for vendors in every section of the public market.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong visited the city public market today where he ordered the installation of a mousetrap for every two vendors.

According to him, hygiene is one of the keys to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus disease.

He also said that the presence of rats in the wet market every night is a priority concern that should be addressed immediately through the rat control program.

Market Supervisor Fernando Ragma will oversee the implementation of the said program.
