“This impressive low figure means that our major markets (Libertad, Burgos, and Central) are relatively safe and, as such, may elicit an enhanced trust and confidence from their daily customers,” he said.

To further ensure the safety and well-being of city residents, the Bacolod Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office regularly disinfects the markets every weekend.
