Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson urged residents to prepare against the more transmissible Delta variant of the Covid-19.

“It is quite alarming,” said Lacson.

Last July 16, Department of Health Region 6 director Adriano Suba-an confirmed that a couple from Pandan, Antique tested positive for the Delta variant. (

“We have to be prepared as far as our hospital services are concerned,” according to the governor.

The variant, first detected in India, has been blamed as a key factor for a surge in cases not only elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific but also in the United Kingdom.
