Since June 1, BARMM has recorded zero Covid-19 cases.
Since June 1, no new cases of coronavirus virus disease (Covid-19) have been reported in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), according to the regional health office.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) stated in a report that the most recent Covid-19 cases in the region were monitored from May 20 to 23.
On May 20, 24, 29, and 30, the MOH-BARMM reported one incidence each, predominantly in Maguindanao.
The provinces of Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi have registered zero new cases and no active cases for several days since May 16, according to the agency.
Only one death related to Covid-19 has been reported in the region since May 17, according to Saida Diocolano-Ali, head of the MOH-BARMM health education promotion and communication section.
Given the low immunization rate in the region, Ali described this as a “exceptional feat.”
She credited the improvement to MOH-big BARMM’s immunization days approach as well as UNICEF’s assistance (UNICEF).
“We are not waiting any longer; we are bringing health services to every Bangsamoro who has not yet received anti-Covid-19 immunizations,” she stated.
As of June 2, the MOH-BARMM has fully vaccinated 1.1 million people, leaving 1.9 million unprotected.
According to MOH Minister Dr. Zul Qarneyn Abas, the National Inter-Agency Task Force has set a goal for BARMM to fully vaccinate 2,487,070 constituents by the end of June.
UNICEF Mindanao field office chief Radoslaw Rzehak stated the organization will continue to assist BARMM in keeping children safe from Covid-19.
“UNICEF is glad to have spent the last two years aiding the BARMM government in lowering the pandemic’s impacts through an evidence-based communications approach, as well as contributing to population protection when the target is attained,” Rzehak added.
