“Human attitude” is the key to combatting the Covid-19 pandemic, Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson.

Lacson made the statement after the Department of Health (DOH) confirmed the local transmission of the Covid-19 Delta variant.

The governor said the province would continue requiring negative RT-PCR test results from incoming people. (

“Every local government unit in Negros Occidental is also encouraged to enforce granular lockdowns when needed,” he added.

Citing the phylogenetic analysis conducted by the Philippine Genome Center and investigation by the DOH’s Epidemiology Bureau, the DOH earlier said that clusters of Delta variant cases were seen as linked to other local cases.

Negros Occidental is still free from Delta variant.
