Despite Covid-19’s seclusion, the mayor of Baguio continues to work.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong is continuing to work despite being in isolation following a minor coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infection, according to an official.

“His infection is really mild,” City Public Information Office (PIO) chief Aileen Refuerzo said in a phone interview on Wednesday. “Nagta-trabaho pa rin siya habang nasa bahay (His infection is mild, and he continues to work while at home).”

Magalong tested positive for Covid-19 on January 29 and is presently on his fourth day of home isolation, according to her.

“By the weekend, pwede na siyang lumabas (By the weekend, he may already go out),” Refuerzo remarked.

Magalong has been infected with Covid-19 twice, the first time in April of last year. Against Covid-19, he has already got a booster shot.

Magalong claimed the city’s Covid-19 instances are continuing to fall in a radio appearance on Wednesday.

“We had 693 daily instances on our highest seven-day moving average. We’re now down to just 141 people. The number of cases peaked on January 3, but they are currently steadily decreasing. “It took us 29 days for our cases to deteriorate and our reproduction number to drop below one,” Magalong explained in Filipino.

Magalong said they will ask the national government to drop Covid-19 to Alert Level 2 by next week, citing the city’s continuing improvement.

Until February 15, Baguio City is under Level 3 Alert.
