THE Talomo District has the most active Covid-19 cases in Davao City with a total of 10 cases as of April 30, 2022, according to Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.

During her Special Hour radio program on Monday, May 2, Duterte-Carpio said Davao City currently has 31 active cases of Covid-19, majority of which were in Talomo District, followed by Buhangi District with seven cases.

Duterte-Carpio said it was not surprising that Talomo and Buhangin have the most cases since they are one of the densely populated districts in the city.

“As expected kasi, dako og population ang Talomo nato... Buhangin as expected kay dako sad og population (That is expected because Talomo and Buhangin have huge populations),” she said.

Other districts with active Covid-19 cases are Poblacion District with five cases, Bunawan District with four, Marilog District with three, and Tugbok and Toril Districts with one case each.

The districts of Paquibato, Calinan, Agdao, and Baguio have zero cases.

“Surprising ang Agdao pero zero cases sila. Daghan tao diri (There are a lot of people in Agdao so it’s surprising they recorded zero cases),” she said.

The 31 cases add to the overall tally of 72,403 cases in Davao City.

According to the mayor, of the 31 active cases, 23 are asymptomatic, three are critical cases, two are severe, two are mild, and one is moderate.

According to Davao City Covid-19 Task Force spokesperson Dr. Michelle Schlosser on April 29, Davao City is still at the safe positivity rate of 1.15 percent as of April 24. However, the City Government is still anticipating a surge possibly brought by the Omicron sub-variant BA2.12.

“Sub-variant ni siya sa Omicron, so ang iyahang features morag pud siya og Omicron, so kung unsa to nakita nato during the Omicron surge, mao pud na iyang itsura karong umaabot na surge (This is a sub-variant of Omicron so it’s features or characteristic may be similar to what we have seen during the Omicron surge),” the mayor said.

She added, though, that she cannot predict whether or not Davao City will ascend to Alert Level 2.

“Mag depende man gyod na siya kung unsa kadaghan ang cases during a surge (It will depend on how many cases we have during the surge),” Duterte-Carpio said.

With these developments, the mayor reminded Dabawenyos to get the booster dose vaccine against Covid-19 before another surge arrives.

“Kung kita matakdan, matakdan mangyod ta (but) dili ta mahimo og severe and critical case, dili tamamatay, dili ta manginahanlan og hospitalization (It’s possible to get infected but we will not become a severe or critical case, we will also avoid death and hospitalization),” she said.
