OLONGAPO CITY—The number of active COVID-19 cases here further dropped to 16 after three more virus-infected patients recovered from the disease, the local task force said on Thursday, November 25.
It was the city’s lowest daily tally of active infections since March 15.

The city’s COVID-19 death toll still stood at 314 with no new fatalities since November 16, the same data showed.
Since last year, a total of 5, 452 COVID-19 cases were recorded in the city but at least 5,122 of them have recovered from the viral disease. It reflected a 94-percent recovery rate.
About 61 percent of the target population of this city had received the first dose of the vaccine against COVID-19.
The city targets to inoculate 182,000 residents or 70 percent of its 260, 000-population to achieve herd immunity.
