Bacolod records zero COVID-19 case


The Emergency Operations Center-Task Force reported that Bacolod City logged zero COVID-19 case on Saturday, April 16.

This is the fourth for the year 2022 that the city logged zero cases after it also recorded zero cases last February 21, March 12 and 14. The first time it registered zero COVID case was on March 10, 2021

Mayor Evelio Leonardia credited Bacolodnons for their continued compliance to minimum health protocols despite the city’s de-escalation to Alert Level 1 status. He also credited the continued vaccination efforts of the EOC-TF and COVac as more residents receive booster shots as added protection against the virus. The mayor issued Executive Order No. 17 Thursday extending AL1 in Bacolod until April 30.

The mayor once again stressed that while we are now under the new normal, we must remain vigilant because COVID is still here.

“We have to live with it and adjust to it accordingly and cautiously,” Leonardia said.
