Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco urged the public to continue practicing health protocols even as the city has been recording the lowest average of new COVID-19 cases over the past three weeks.

From 12.36 average daily attack rate (ADAR) in April 25-May 1 and 7.2 in May 3-9, the city’s ADAR further plummeted to 5.99 in May 9-14 according to OCTA Research Group.

“It is so easy for our COVID numbers to shoot up, especially now that we have four new and highly transmissible variants. Yet, it takes so much energy, time, and money to get those numbers down. This is why we must continue to be extra careful and do our utmost to be protected from the disease,” Tiangco said.

Tiangco also called on residents to be vaccinated against COVID-19 if they’re part of the A1 to A3 priority groups, which covers healthcare workers, senior citizens and adults with comorbidities.

This week you can choose whether you want AstraZeneca or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines for your first dose,” he added.
