ZAMBOANGA CITY – The local Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) is planning to allow children outdoors during the Yuletide Season as the number of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases continue to decline.
Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar, local IATF-EID chairperson, said Tuesday she supports the proposal to allow children in public places this December once the community quarantine restriction goes down to Alert Level 2 from the current Alert Level 3.
“This (shift to Alert Level 2) will allow minors to experience the multi-million Christmas decorations on display of the city government,” she said in a statement.
Salazar said this year’s Christmas decorations put up by the local government are anchored on the theme “Winter Wonderland.”
The Zamboanga Task Force Covid-19 data tracker showed that the active cases of Covid-19 decreased to 368 as of November 29 from 394 a day before.
The data also showed that 362 of the cases are community-acquired while the rest include four detainees, one authorized person outside of residence (APOR), and one from the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor).
Of the patients, 66.7 percent are asymptomatic; 20.6 are with mild symptoms; 5.6 percent have moderate symptoms; 5.2 percent are severe; and 1.9 percent are critical.
The data also showed that this city has a total of 22,255 confirmed Covid-19 cases with 20,825 recoveries and 1,062 deaths as of November 29. (PNA)
