28 Bacolod brgys COVID-FREE for 2 weeks


A total of 28 of 61 barangays in Bacolod City have been “COVID-free” for the past 14 days, per latest information released by the Emergency Operations Center Task Force (EOC-TF).

These barangays are 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 30, 31, 34, 36, 37, 38, 41, Felisa, Montevista, and Alangilan, data from the EOC-TF show.

This latest statistics translates into 45.9 percent, or almost half, of Bacolod barangays without COVID-19 transmission for two weeks.

According to City Administrator Em Ang, the increase or decrease in the number of cases in Bacolod depends on the people’s cooperation with local policies and observance of the minimum health protocols.

“Lately, most cases are from close contacts. We’d like to remind the people that mass gatherings or celebrations like birthdays are common venue for the spreading of COVID-19. Based on the reports of the EOC, there is a pattern for infection during these gatherings. We have to be vigilant and careful so we can maintain and sustain the lowering of cases,” Ang stressed.
