‘Battle of our lives’
Even with this development, Mayor Gerald Anthony Gullas said the city will remain to be vigilant in the fight against the virus.
“I was quoted after my SOCA that I said we won this battle, I never said that. No one will ever win this battle, at least not yet. We continue to fight the battle of our lives. We remain vigilant here [in the] city,” Gullas said in a Facebook post.
He did credit, though, Talisaynons for their cooperation towards the city’s efforts.
“We haven’t won, but we have made big steps towards that because of the cooperation of all Talisaynons. Our success is yours as well,” he added.
The mayor said the five remaining active cases in the city have been accounted for and are isolated from the community.
