Baguio City a 'good example' for other LGU's in curbing COVID-19 spread

The cities and lone municipalty from the National Capital Region (NCR) can learn something from Baguio city. No new transmission have been recorded since March 28, which could lead to the city’s “flattening the curve” due in part to the strict implementation of the quarantine, Baguio city mayor said.

Under the administration of Mayor Benjamin Magalong, Baguio City is leading the way in flattening the curve in its current battle with the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.

This translates to the fact that frequency of infections has been reduced or become manageable for the level of health services available in a locality like Baguio, which has recorded 14 COVID-19 infections.

5 of the 14 have since recovered, Many are Metro Manila residents, while five have gone public to help speed up the tracing and isolation of people with whom they have had contact.

Local health officials have said that no new cases have been reported because of the cooperation of the residents who heeded staying at home for the last three weeks, and the contact tracing of the people suspected of contracting the disease even though no confirmatory results have been released

No Complacency.

“We should continue holding the line by sustaining our vigilance and by not lapsing into complacency,” Magalong said in a statement.

The Baguio Police also recorded a 74-percent drop in crimes committed in Baguio during the lockdown.
