The Bacolod City Emergency Operations Center (EOC) yesterday revealed that the city now has 46 remaining active cases of COVID-19 based on real time data.
According to the EOC, of the 46 active cases, 19 of them are either locally stranded individuals (LSIs) and authorized persons outside of residence (APORs). The remaining 27 are local cases, most of whom are tagged as “close contacts.”
The EOC is currently projecting that there will be over 20 new COVID-19 cases before the year ends, with the city currently recording an average of one to two daily cases.
Dr. Chris Sorongon, EOC’s deputy chief for medical, said they will continue carrying out COVID-19 testing in the city targeting close contacts, APORs, pregnant women, those undergoing dialysis, and medical frontliners./DGB, WDJ
