Bacolod City is preparing for Covid-19’s’recovery mode.’
BACOLOD CITY, Philippines – After its status was dropped from Alert Level 3 to Alert Level 2 on Wednesday, the local government here is aiming for a transition to recovery mode.
The development is an acknowledgment of the local government unit’s excellent handling of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases, according to Em Legaspi-Ang, executive director of the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force (EOC-TF).
“By easing the restrictions, more enterprises will be able to reopen.” This will also boost our people’s mobility and provide them the opportunity to work,” she added.
She added that the new status will allow for the gradual return of activities like restricted face-to-face classes, social and cultural events, sports, shopping, dining out, and hassle-free travel.
Legaspi-Ang cited the national Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases’ decision to place Bacolod under Alert Level 2 from February 16 to 28 as a result of the city’s high vaccination rate and a considerable decline in infections over the previous two weeks.
Bacolodnons will now be able to see how effectively the city will manage by relying on the strict implementation of minimal health regulations by business establishments and a joint effort to maintain safety protocols, she said.
“If we can do this, we will have transitioned from crisis to recovery mode,” Legaspi-Ang remarked.
Dr. Chris Sorongon, EOC-TF deputy for medical data analysis, said the city can undoubtedly go forward in balancing the people’s health and the economy with systems and processes in place in the execution of the PDITR + V or prevent, detect, isolate, treat, reintegrate + vaccine approach.
“We’re getting closer to reintegration and rehabilitation.” We’re ready to resume progressive face-to-face classes. We’ll spread the word to urge more businesses to renew and apply for the safety seal. The fully-vaccinated seal will be awarded to those who have properly vaccinated their employees and personnel. He went on to say, “We will make Bacolod City safe for everyone.”
According to data from the Department of Health-Western Visayas, Bacolod has 655 active Covid-19 cases as of Wednesday.
