Governor Daniel R. Fernando is looking for a good Christmas in Bulacan this year as the number of COVID-19 cases in the province continues to decline.
Fernando said on Thursday the battle versus COVID-19 in the province is improving due to the increasing number of vaccinated residents and the people’s continuous compliance to the minimum public health standards.
He said the great decline in the number of COVID-19 cases for more than a week may pave the way to the reopening of more than 2,0000 businesses in Bulacan.
“Subali’t ang pagbaba ng kaso ay hindi dahilan upang maging kampante tayo, hindi pa rin natin dapat papayagan ang face-to-face classes, sasang-ayon po lamang tayo dito kapag nababakunahan na ang lahat ng mga kabataan,” (But the declining cases will not be the reason for us to be complacent, we still don’t allow the face-to-face classes, we’ll only agree if all youths will be vaccinated),” the governor said.
Fernando said he will request the national Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) and the Department of Education (DepEd) to exclude Bulacan schools from the planned resumption of face-to-face classes in November.
On Thursday morning, at least 300 individuals lined up at Vista Mall in the City of Malolos to receive their first dose of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. (Freddie C. Velez)
