With the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Cebu City, Rosario said that they intensified their monitoring not only in the main thoroughfare, but also in the interior portions of the city to ensure compliance with health protocols.

Based on the case bulletin of the Department of Health in Central Visayas, Cebu City, on Sunday, logged 477 new cases. Cebu City now has 2,546 active cases.

Rosario hopes that with the assistance of force multipliers, they will be able to continue their strict implementation of health protocols to avoid another surge of COVID-19 cases.
