0 24

Despite the rising number of new coronavirus (Covid-19) cases, Mayor Jonas Cortes sees no need for Mandaue City to revert to general community quarantine (GCQ) from its current modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) status.

Cortes said the rise is still not alarming to warrant a return to GCQ, the second most relaxed lockdown level.

The city already expected the cases to rise due to the long holiday break where a lot of people were going out, the mayor also said. (

In less than two weeks, the city’s active Covid-19 cases rose from 22 last December 31, 2020, to 80 as of January 11, 2021.

The mayor likewise urged residents to fully cooperate and not be complacent.
