Baguio has a high recovery rate for Covid-19.
Despite an ongoing surge in coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases, the city government here continues to record a large number of recoveries.
A compilation of daily statistics released by the city government revealed that between January 17 and 23, a total of 3,004 recoveries and 3,568 new Covid-19 cases were recorded.
There were also 22 reported deaths.
“Natutuwa tayo na marami ang gumagaling agad kahit nagpa-positive kasi karamihan ng taga Baguio nabakunahan na,” Aileen Refuerzo, city information office chief, said in a phone interview on Monday, “we are happy that many of those who tested positive for the virus immediately recover because the majority of the residents here have been vaccinated
According to data from the city vaccination operation center, the city had provided the full dose of vaccine to 268,972 or 95.71 percent of the 281,000 targets eligible adult population as of January 20. Booster shots were also given to a total of 67,521 people.
Similarly, 30,499 minors between the ages of 12 and 17 have got the full dose of immunizations.
From only two-digit active cases before the end of 2021, the city began to see a surge in Covid-19 cases in the first week of January.
Refuerzo, on the other hand, claims that the city has a high recovery rate since the majority of patients have a moderate infection or are asymptomatic.
According to Mayor Benjamin Magalong, while the Omicron variant is highly contagious and spreads quickly, the majority of patients recover without the need for hospitalization or isolation.
“Vaccines did not guarantee that we would be free of Covid, but they did promise that they would help prevent severe infections, hospitalizations, and deaths.” This is why we will continue to persuade those who have not been vaccinated to do so. “Getting the jab is the best way to avoid hospitalization and death,” Magalong told Refuerzo.
“There is less hospitalization and demand for oxygen and critical medicines than there was during the Delta variant surge,” the mayor added.
“We can say that vaccines work based on empirical data,” Refuerzo said.
On January 15, the city met its self-imposed immunization target of 95% of the eligible adult population.
