"THERE are no signs of lowering down of the Covid-19 cases yet," Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital (CLMMRH) head Dr. Julius Drilon said over the weekend.

Drilon said close monitoring of the Covid-19 situation in the local community showed there has been no let-up in new cases.

Based on samples collected by the Bacolod City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (Cesu) from June 14 to 18, it showed a similar and consistent trend in the positivity rate since the beginning of June.

The Cesu report showed there is currently a positivity rate of 33.52 percent with samples showing one out of three are positive for the Covid-19 virus.

Drilon emphasized that people are the solution to the growing problem. He urged everyone to combine forces in mitigating the spread of the virus by staying at home and consistently wearing face masks and face shields.

He further added the cost of preventing Covid-19 is cheaper than healing and recovering from the illness.
