Tabuk City, Kalinga – Kalinga Province now has only three active cases of COVID-19 out of the 9,701 cumulative cases recorded as of December 21.
The good news was gladly relayed by Governor Ferdinand Tubban during the awarding of livelihood assistance to the beneficiaries of Negosyo Serbisyo sa Barangay: Livelihood Seeding Program held earlier today, December 21, at Davidson Hotel, Bulanao, Tabuk City, but this, he said, does not mean that the public could let their guards down. Instead, they should continue adhering to health protocols as the virus is still out there.
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Edward Tandingan confirmed this as he shared that all municipalities attained zero active COVID-19 cases except the City of Tabuk with two cases and Pinukpuk with one.
The development is also attributed to the efforts of the provincial and local governments on health programs, such as the localized National Vaccination Days imposed by the governor through an Executive Order.
“Hopefully, nu maka-recover diay duwa ket awanen,” added the governor.
Tubban underscored that social gathering among the public may not be prevented with the incoming holiday celebrations, but to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones, they must practice minimum health protocols such as wearing facemasks and regular handwashing or sanitizing.
“Always nga ag-precaution tayo amin ta ti COVID-19 ket adda laeng dita,” he stressed.
