0 14

Mayor Junard Chan wants to know where the Department of Health (DOH) got its data on the rising Covid-19 cases in Lapu-Lapu City.

The city’s daily new infections are “so low,” said Chan.

The mayor was reacting to reports that the DOH might place the city under Alert Level 3 after November 30, noting a positive two-week growth rate. (

Lapu-Lapu is under Alert Level 2 until the end of the month.

Chan said DOH’s metrics were “very impossible” as the city’s cases remain “very low.”

Based on DOH-7’s November 23 case bulletin, Lapu-Lapu only has 44 active cases, including two fresh cases.

Most of the days, the city registered only a single case or two, except for on November 10 when it logged 11 fresh cases. The city reported zero case last Monday.
