Baguio city seems to be leading the way for the rest of the country in battling the coronavirus, it’s a bit odd since most of the focus is on the National Capital Region (NCR).

The City Health Office (CHO) of Baguio has reported that there has been an absence of COVID-19 cases in the city for the last five days, but it is not an insurance that the threat of the virus is over so the health of the city has called for non-complacency.

City Health Officer Dr. Rowena Galpo cautioned that the city may have not seen a new positive case in the last five days – the last being on March 28 – but this did not mean that people could now let their guard down.


The City Health Officer underscored that the more that the public should be vigilant and should continue to observe the COVID-19 control protocols in the remaining 12 days of the enhanced community quarantine, which is scheduled to end on April 14, or even beyond should authorities extend it.

Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong is not letting his guard down for the sake of his constituents, the mayor wants to follow through with the contact tracing to make sure that no one will be missed.

“There were gaps before that we are now addressing so we will not be surprised if more cases will turn up,” the mayor said.
Baguio city Epidemiologist Dr. Donnabel Panes also expressed her optimism that the contamination had been contained and contacts rounded up at the moment. What can you say about this?
