Efforts ain’t in vain: Toby Tiangco elated as Navotas records least number of COVID-19 cases in NCR


Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco is elated as the spread of COVID-19 in the city has slowed down.

Government data shows Navotas recorded the least number of COVID-19 cases per day among all local government units in the National Capital Region.

The city posted an average of 19 daily new cases from May 3 to 9, 2021. It is -32% lower than last week’s report of 33 cases per day.

“We are glad to learn of such great news. Our sacrifices and hard work have paid off. We are grateful to our frontliners and employees for their dedicated service, as well as to each resident for their support and cooperation to our anti-COVID campaign,” Tiangco said.

“Our fight against COVID is still long, especially now that the variant from India has entered our country. We need to protect the gains we have achieved by taking part in our vaccination program, obeying the community quarantine rules, and following the minimum health protocols. Let us stop this pandemic. Let us keep each other safe,” he added.

As of May 11, Navotas recorded 213 active cases, 10,063 recoveries, and 344 deaths.
