Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia met with barangay officials in the city following the recent spike on Covid- 19 cases.

Leonardia expressed alarm over the three-digit figure rise in confirmed infections for three consecutive days.

He called on 20 barangay captains for an urgent online meeting last week to discuss the sudden surge despite the city’s vaccination drive. (https://bit.ly/3Cd9MWb)

“We want to get you involved. We want to listen to you because you are the people who know what’s happening at ground zero. Your ideas will be incorporated in our policies and practices,” the mayor told the barangay executives.

In the past weeks, the number of cases in Bacolod were consistently below the three-digit mark.

But from September 9 to 11, the city posted more than 100 cases each day, according to the Department of Health-Region 6’s Covid-19 Bulletin.

“This is alarming for us, considering that it’s been quite long that we only had double-digit cases. Now we are back to having three-digit figures,” said Leonardia.
