Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson won’t hesitate to seek a general community quarantine status if active cases continue to rise in Negros Occidental.

“When the numbers call for it. We might have to go to a stricter quarantine status. We are having a net double-digit increase per day of active cases,” said Lacson.

As of June 5, the province logged 1,723 active cases, 354 casualties, and 13,742 recoveries. (

Other than easing the curfew hours, the governor said he will continue to order the strict implementation of health protocols in all local government units.

Meanwhile, Lacson wished for all provinces to have a steady weekly supply of vaccines.

“It should not boil down to who is making the request,” he said following the arrival of 10,000 Sinovac vaccine doses from the national government last Saturday.
