BY GILBERT P. BAYORAN

Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr. has suspended the application and issuance of all permits for non-essential gatherings, as well as revoked all related permits issued for similar purposes, amid rising COVID-19 cases in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.

There is a need to exercise preventive intervention to stem the continued rise of COVID-19 cases, especially those with pre-existing comorbidities, as well as the elderly population, wherein the vaccination targets of the Department of Health continue to be unmet, even a present, Escalante, in his issued Executive Order Number SGE-018-2022, said.

As of August 25, Cadiz City logged 13 COVID-19 active cases. Of the number, 11 of them at the Cadiz District Hospital for treatment, an advisory issued by its City Health Office said.

While Cadiz City was placed under Alert Level 1 status by the National Inter Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases, confirmed cases continue to rise in Cadiz City and the province of Negros Occidental, Escalante said.

Until now, COVID-19 deaths in Cadiz City remains at 87 since two years ago.*
