Based on a document sent to The Manila Times, the Pasay government, indicated that the lockdown in most areas will last until either March 4 or 5.

The affected villages are: 28, 29, 32, 40, 57, 58, 66, 68, 71, 76, 81, 95, 98, 100, 107, 109, 118, 122, 132, 135, 136, 143, 155, 156, 159, 162, 175, 177, 178, 183, 190, 192,  201, 171, 7, 8, 14, 20, 26, 36, 51, 59, 65, 74, 90, 96, 99, 110, 111, 116, 131, 161, 188, 193, 194.

Pasay City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (CESU) head Miko Llorca on Wednesday said, however, that the localized lockdown did not include the whole barangay, but only streets or even households with known cases.

Any village with more than three cases will be placed under localized lockdown.

The Octa Research Group, in a report released on Sunday, said Pasay has posted a 200 percent increase in cases from February 18 to 20.

To date, Pasay has 7,704 cases including 435 active, 7073 recoveries, and 196 deaths.
