Bacolod City has not recorded a single COVID-19 case on February 21 based on the real time data from the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force, Mayor Evelio Leonardia disclosed late last night.
Record showed that the first time Bacolod registered zero COVID case was on March 10, 2021.
On February 2, 2022 Bacolod City also registered zero case for the day, Dr. Chris Sorongon, EOC-TF deputy for medical data analysis said.
The last seven days saw the drop of COVID cases to 14 and further slipped to 12, then to only 11 daily infections from Thursday until Saturday.
Six cases were reported by the EOC-TF on Sunday and zero tonight, Leonardia, quoting task force’s Sorongon and secretariat head Theresa Quebrar-Manalili.
Leonardia expressed gratitude to Bacolodnons for heeding the city government’s call for continued compliance to minimum health protocols despite the decline of cases the past several weeks.
This is testimonial to the Bacolodnons’ full cooperation as we continue the fight against the pandemic. Credit also goes to our EOC Task Force, headed by former councilor Em Ang, and health frontliners, Leonardia added.
The mayor reiterated anew that “we must learn how to live with the virus and adjust to it accordingly and cautiously.”
Sorongon cited six factors for Bacolod’s successful management of COVID-19.
