A total of 27,581 or 87 percent of COVID-19 cases in Bulacan province have already recovered, according to the Provincial Health Office (PHO).


The recoveries were part of the province’s 27,581 COVID-19 tally as of Saturday, May 7.

In his Facebook post today, Governor Daniel R. Fernando reminded Bulakenyos to keep following the safety measures against the dreaded disease — such as wearing face masks and face shields, social distancing, frequent handwashing, and avoiding mass gathering.

“Kakaunti na lamang po ang ating active cases. Kapag wala nang madagdag dito ay makakaraos na tayo sa ganitong sitwasyon, at ‘yan ay kung magkaisa tayong lahat sa laban na ito,” (We only have few active cases now. With no additional cases in the coming days, we can get through this situation, and that is if we unite together in this fight),” Fernando said.

He also urged them to continue praying to God that the more dreaded COVID variant in India would not reach the Philippines.

He said prayer is the strongest weapon because it can indeed move mountains.

The PHO said that of the total confirmed cases in the province, 2,480 (10%) are active and 646 (3%) have died.

Most of the active cases were admitted in the hospitals, and temporary treatment and monitoring facilities; while others are on home isolation.

No new death has been reported.
