The Makati City local government announced that active COVID-19 cases in the city have dropped dramatically.

According to the Makati Health Department (MHD), there are now only 70 active cases in the city as of Thursday, Nov. 25, a drastic decrease from the 322 active cases last Nov. 1.

It added that Makati City now has 44,044 recoveries and 983 deaths.

Makati City Mayor Abby Binay attributed the decrease in COVID-19 cases to the high rate of vaccination in the National Capital Region (NCR) and the public’s strict adherence to the minimum public health standards.

The MHD said that as of Wednesday, Nov. 24, the city has already deployed 881,244 COVID-19 vaccines with 428,423 individuals receiving their first dose and 368,545 who have been fully vaccinated.

Binay urged the public to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their families against the virus and for the country to achieve herd immunity against the disease.

The Makati City government said that walk-ins are now allowed for Makatizens under the A2 (senior citizens) and A3 (persons with comorbidities) priority groups to receive their anti-COVID-19 booster shots. Only those who are fully vaccinated for more than six months can be given the booster jab.
