In a statement on Friday, Carlos Malaver, chief of the Transit and Roadway Safety, said that private vehicles will be banned from plying on the roads on December 24-25 and 31 and on January 1, reports Xinhua news agency.

“The police and the armed forces will be located at strategic points,” Malaver told a local radio station.

The move is designed to prevent an increase in cases over the holidays, as streets are bustling with shoppers.
