MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga––The City of San Fernando recorded Thursday 118 new COVID-19 cases, its highest single-day record since March last year.

This tally should remind residents to stay at home if they do not have essential things to do outside and avoid mass gatherings, the city government said in a statement.
