Angeles City Covid-19 death toll reaches 20

THE Angeles City Government has recorded 20 coronavirus disease (Covid-19) deaths as of September 14, 2020.

Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. said the City Health Office has reported six new cases of Covid-19, bringing the city's total to 469 as of September 14.

At present, there are 175 active cases and 274 recoveries, Lazatin said.

Meanwhile, the mayor lauded the frontline workers in the city for their dedication to serve the people.

"Ngayong Setyembre ay ipinagdiriwang natin ang ika 120 taon ng serbisyo sibil ng Pilipinas. Nais ko pong pasalamat at bigyan ng pugay ang ating mga frontliners at health workers na buong tapang na sinusuong ang panganib sa nakalipas na anim na buwan na kinaharap natin sa pandemya ng Covid-19," Lazatin said.

Covid-19 cases continue to increase despite measures being undertaken by the City Government, he added.

Lazatin said he ordered for the temporary closure of private and public cemeteries in the city starting October 30 until November 3.

"Minabuti natin na ipasara muna pansamantala ang mga pampubliko at pribadong sementeryo sa siyudad upang sa darating na Undas. Hindi po natin papayagan ang pagbisita ng mga Angelenos sa mga sementeryo," he said.

"Hinihikayat ko po kayo na manatili muna sa bahay sa mga araw na ito. Anumang uri ng pagtitipon ay mahigpit nating ipinagbabawal sa siyudad," the mayor added.
