COVID-19 cases in Quezon City are continuing to drop as residents and workers continue to get vaccinated against the virus, report from the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU) showed.
On Thursday, the city has recorded its new all-time low of 151 active cases, no new death, and an average of 16 new cases per day over the week.
Out of 142 barangays in the city, there are now 53 barangays or 37 percent with zero active cases over the past two weeks.
“The last time we recorded the lowest number of active cases was in December 2021, with 165 cases. Then it went up again due to the Omicron variant,” said Dr. Rolly Cruz, head of CESU.
“This is a welcome development for us in the city, and we want to thank every QCitizen for your sense of responsibility which made this possible,” said Mayor Joy Belmonte.
Belmonte reminded those who have yet to get their COVID-19 vaccine or booster shot to do so by visiting the nearest barangay health center or by registering online via https://qceservices.quezoncity.gov.ph/qcvaxeasy.
As of March 31, QC reported more than 5.57 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered, with 2.56 million adults and minors having received at least one dose, while 2.4 million individuals are considered fully vaccinated.
