After validation by the Emergency Operations Center’s Data Management Cluster, the city vaxxed a total of 29,047 residents on Day One of the National Vaccination Days dubbed as “Bayanihan Bakunahan”.
It’s still a record and way above the 22,000 target set by DOH-6.
Bacolod also confirmed that it recorded only two COVID-19 cases today, November 29, the lowest number of infections since the spike of infections this year.
The real-time figures were reported today by the Data Management Cluster of the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force headed by Executive Director Em Legaspi-Ang.
Informed of the latest development, Mayor Evelio Leonardia cited the continued public cooperation in support of the local government’s vaccination drive.
Leonardia also credited it to the hard work of EOC-TF health frontliners who worked tirelessly, even on a 24-hour shift, to inoculate as many residents in the city’s bid to achieve herd immunity.
Leonardia made the rounds of the vaccination sites that opened as early as 8 a.m. for the Day One of the Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 National Vaccination Days.
Bacolod City had added two additional Bayanihan Bakunahan sites today to bring the total to 42 vaccination centers, Dr. Edwin Miraflor, Jr., City Health Office OIC, said.
Dr. Rosalie Deocampo, head of EOC’s contact-tracing cluster, said one case is an unvaccinated breast cancer patient from Vista Alegre while the second one, a physician from Singcang-Airport, is asymptomatic.
On Nov. 28, the Data Management Cluster said 195 probables underwent RT-PCR tests and results showed only 1.03-percent positivity rate.
Ten COVID positive patients have also completed the required quarantine period, resulting to 95.46-percent recovery rate.
The real-time “active cases” are also down to only 273 as of today, the DMC added
