EOC Chief: Mandaue’s hospitalization rate now at 30 percent
MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – Mandaue City’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) reported a “slight drop” in the number of daily cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Lawyer Lizer Malate, the EOC chief, said that city’s positivity rate dropped from 14 percent in March to 11.51 percent during the first week of April.
Average daily cases also dropped from 46 in March to 27 this month while the city’s hospital utilization rate is now at 30 percent.
Malate attributed these developments to the strict implementation of health protocols, the imposition of a liquor ban and non-essential gatherings, and the public and private sectors’ cooperation to these initiatives.
As of April 6, data from the Department of Health (DOH) show that Mandaue City still has 824 active cases of the infection.
