BACOLOD CITY –– The Department of Health (DOH) on May 10 downgraded this city’s COVID-19 risk classification from high to moderate, while Negros Occidental remains a low-risk area despite an increase in the number of cases in the province.

Dr. Marie Jocelyn Te, in an online briefing on the COVID-19 situation in Western Visayas, said Bacolod’s classification was lowered because the average daily attack rate per 100,000 population had dropped.
