MULING nakapagtala ang Navotas City ng pinakamababang kaso ng COVID-19 kada araw sa loob ng tatlong magkakasunod na linggo.
Ayon sa OCTA Research Group, mula 12.36 average daily attack rate (ADAR) sa April 25-May 1 at 7.2 sa May 3-9, bumulusok ang ADAR ng lungsod sa 5.99 nitong May 9-14.
“We thank everyone for their contribution to our fight against COVID-19–our frontliners, for their steadfast service in spite of the dangers and challenges their profession entails, and all residents and workers in the city, for their cooperation and support to our policies and programs,” ani Mayor Toby Tiangco.
“Our declining ADAR shows that the policies we implemented have been effective in protecting our people from COVID-19 and in preventing further transmission of the virus. These include the use of quarantine bands for COVID-positive patients and their close contacts, and the swab test requirement for those who violated the safety health protocols,” dagdag niya.
Gayunman, binalaan ni Tiangco ang mga Navoteño na panatilihin ang kanilang pagbabantay at patuloy na isagawa ang minimum health standards.
“It is so easy for our COVID numbers to shoot up, especially now that we have four new and highly transmissible variants. Yet, it takes so much energy, time, and money to get those numbers down. This is why we must continue to be extra careful and do our utmost to be protected from the disease,” payo niya.
“Aside from following our safety protocols, have yourself vaccinated if you are 18 years old and above. This week you can choose whether you want AstraZeneca or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines for your first dose,” sabi pa ng alkalde.
