According to the City Health Office, a total of 52 active cases and five new cases were recorded in the city on June 12.

The city government succeeded in lowering down COVID-19 active cases after Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano issued an order placing barangays under localized community lockdown with two or more cases of virus.

An aggressive contact tracing was also made and the prevent-detect-isolate-treat and reintegrate (PDITR) was used a tool by the city government to prevent the spread of the virus in the city.

In Pasay City General Hospital, the city’s lone public hospital, the occupancy rate for COVID-19 confirmed ward is now 25 percent which means its already at normal and safe risk rating.
