Is the province of Batangas free from Covid now?
This question is wanting of an honest to goodness answer from provincial health office authorities led by Dr. Rose Ozaeta as it seems the men and women of the PHO are “sleeping on the job” ... again!
For the nth time, daily updates on the province’s Covid cases went pfft again as nobody seems to be giving attention to it now. The last was made something like 10 days ago as of this writing.
Or, could it be that there is nothing anymore to report?
If that were the case, then aren’t we, Batangueños, also entitled to an honest-to-goodness official announcement on the actual Covid situation in the province?
Were it not for the cities of Lipa and Batangas, no one would ever know the real score on the issue of the killer disease.
It's a good thing positive cases are actually on the decline now. Both Batangas and Lipa recorded two cases each on March 10 and 11. In this same period, Lipa had 35 active cases while Batangas had 14.
But what about the 32 other local government units in the province?
Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas has always reminded fellow Batangueños never to let their guards down and implementing minimum health protocol.
Batangueños cannot be complacent in the province’s war on Covid.
Although Alert Levels have gone down, that is not tantamount to considering the war vs Covid-19 is far from over.
