To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
Las Pinas City Mayor Imelda Aguilar announced on Thursday, Dec. 9, that active cases of COVID-19 in the city are down to 21 based on the report of the City Health Office (CHO).
Aguilar said the decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in the city “only shows that the effort of the city government in encouraging all its residents to get the jab against the virus is a success.”
She said out of the 20 barangays in the city, nine recorded zero cases.
The mayor said among the remaining barangays with the highest actives case is Barangay Almanza Uno with 6.
Aguilar said barangays with active cases are being strictly monitored by the CHO. Most of the patients are already on their way to recovery.
She said the city government already achieved herd immunity with a total of 524, 405 equivalent to 117.3 percent of the 70 percent population who were already vaccinated with their first dose, and 477, 678 equivalent to 106.8 percent who received their second dose.
The mayor said the city is among the 23 cities around the country reported to have achieved herd immunity.
