Cavite records no new COVID-19 case for the first time since ECQ
MANILA, Philippines — The province of Cavite has recorded no additional case of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) for the first time since community quarantine was enforced in March 2020, its governor announced on Monday.
“Sa unang pagkakataon simula ECQ (enhanced community quarantine) lockdown na nagsimula noong Marso 2020, ang latest report sa akin ng Provincial Health Surveillance Officer ay nagtala ng ZERO reported cases ang COVID-19 sa buong Cavite, kahapon January 3, 2020,” Governor Jonvic Remulla said in a Facebook post.
(For the first time since ECQ started in March 2020, the latest report forwarded to me by the Provincial Health Surveillance Officer is that we had zero reported COVID-19 cases in the entire Cavite yesterday, January 3, 2020.)
But Remulla was quick to remind his constituents not to celebrate just yet, warning that the province may still see an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases starting January 10 to 14 following the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
“Huwag kalimutan ang todo pag-iingat at patuloy na pagmamasid sa mga kaganapan at sa buong kapaligiran,” the governor added.
(Don’t forget to be extra careful and continue to monitor updates on the situation and your surroundings.)
Based on the data from the COVID-19 tracker of the Department of Health, Cavite has so far recorded a total of 24,131 cases of the disease, consisting of 696 active cases, 23,197 recoveries, and 238 deaths.
