THE City Engineer’s Office (CEO) is undertaking the repair of some of the cubicles of the isolation facility at the Mayor Joaquin F. Enriquez, Jr. Memorial Sports Complex in Zamboanga City.

The tracker likewise showed an additional 21 new recoveries and three mortalities from the previous posting.

The confirmed Covid-19 cases for this city now totaled 5,106, with 4,187 recoveries and 212 deaths.
