OLONGAPO CITY — At least 16 new cases of COVID-19 were added to the tally of Police Regional Office 3 (PRO3) as it continued to experience a rising number of virus-infected personnel, local health data showed on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

The uptick in infections among police personnel in Central Luzon was observed despite the high vaccination rate of the PRO3 workforce.
