CITY OF MALOLOS- Governor Daniel R. Fernando reminded the Bulakenyos anew to follow the minimum health standards amid the continuous spike of COVID-19 cases in the province in the past weeks.
“Kung maaari po, lagi nating isipin na may virus, mag-ingat at maging maingat po tayo hindi lang dahil kailangan natin sa trabaho, sa lakad o sa ospital. Nakikiusap po ako, huwag po nating isipin na ‘sipon lang’ o ‘ubo lang’ kasi iyon nga po ang COVID-19, ito po ay mga sintomas na, kaya intindihin din po natin ‘yung mga kapwa natin kasi iba-iba po ang lakas ng katawan ng bawat tao, at pwedeng yung iba tamaan ng malala,” Fernando said.
As for Bulacan COVID-19 updates, the province has recorded 10,098 total number of COVID-19 cases with 492 fresh cases as of January 19, 2022. In total, there were 103,993 Bulakenyos who acquired the said virus and 1,503 already died.
According to Sitrep No. 688 from the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on Epidemic Risk Level per LGU as of January 17, 2022, 13 LGUs are under critical classification, 10 are high and one is moderate.
Moreover, Bulacan was placed under the quarantine status Alert Level 3 from January 5 until January 31, 2022 through Executive Orders No. 1 and No.3 Series of 2022 issued by Fernando.
The governor also stressed the importance of COVID-19 vaccines no matter what brand.
“Salamat talaga at may bakuna. Dahil sa bakuna mild na lang karaniwan ang nagiging sintomas pero meron pa ring mga hindi bakunado, may mga bata pa, kaya hinihikayat pa rin natin na magpabakuna ‘yung iba, huwag lang po tayong magsiksikan sa mga bakunahan,” Fernando said.
