CITY OF MALOLOS- Governor Daniel R. Fernando clears that there is no need to panic as the number of COVID-19 cases in the province is still at low to minimal risk classification and Bulacan is under Alert Level 1, the lowest classification there is, for the past months.
On May 9, the Provincial Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (PESU) reported 37 fresh cases and 13 late cases, while 110 cases were recorded by the Provincial Health Office-Public Health from April 26 to May 2.
In addition, 94% of the 355 active cases are asymptomatic, and only 6% are severe cases.
“Wala po tayong dapat ipangamba dahil may bahagya mang pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID-19, ito naman ay kontrolado. Gayunpaman, hindi ibig sabihin nito ay maaari na tayong magpabaya. Narito pa rin ang COVID kaya naman kailangang pa rin tayong mag-ingat,” the governor said.
Although wearing of face mask is now optional, Fernando still encourages the Bulakenyos to follow the basic health protocol especially when in places with improper ventilation and when outdoors.
He also highlighted the need for up to two COVID booster shots because it is the key to halt the spread of COVID-19.
“Inilapit na po ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan sa inyo ang pagbabakuna sa pamamagitan ng Vaccination on Wheels na kasabay na bumababa ng Damayan sa Barangay sa ating mga lugar. Ito po ay libre, ligtas, at epektibo, kaya naman wala na pong dahilan upang hindi tayo makapagpabakuna,” he stressed.
For the schedule of Vaccination on Wheels, Bulakenyos may visit the Facebook page of the Bulacan Provincial COVID-19 Vaccination Site Updates at https://www.facebook.com/bulacanprovincialvaccination.
Aside from this, COVID booster shots are available at health centers and vaccination sites in every municipality and city of the province.
