DAVAO CITY, Philippines — As of Wednesday, the Department of Health in the Davao Region (DOH -11) reported that 147 additional coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases have recovered in Davao City, outnumbering the city’s new cases.
The DOH-11 noted in its most recent bulletin that overall recoveries had risen to 68,775 after 147 more patients had recovered from the condition. In contrast, 94 new cases have been reported in the city, increasing the total number of Covid-19 infections in the city to 993 since the pandemic began in 2020.
Active cases in the region have decreased to 5,672, accounting for 4.2 percent of the total 133,772 cumulative cases.
“We are grateful that the number of instances has decreased…. In a virtual interview with Davao City Disaster Radio, Dr. Michelle Schlosser, the DOH-11 medical health officer, said, “We are still monitoring its continual decrease.”
According to a DOH-11 official, Davao City has already vaccinated 85.14 percent of its whole population of nearly 1.6 million people.
“Previously, we were only aiming to vaccinate to achieve population immunity, but today our goal is to vaccinate the entire population,” Schlosser said, adding that booster doses are also important for people who have completed their immunizations.
“We’re also beefing up our push to encourage individuals to receive booster shots.” It’s an extra layer of defense, with a 25-fold increase in protection against infection and illness severity,” she explained.
Alert No. 2
Meanwhile, the city will be on Alert Level 2 from February 16 until February 28, 2022.
