CAGAYAN DE OR CITY, PHILIPPINES — Yesterday, June 6, Mayor Oscar Moreno signed Executive Order No. 104-2022, lifting the curfew hour period in Cagayan de Oro City.
During the Monday press briefing at the City Hall, Moreno confirmed that the City Legal Office had drafted an order to lift the curfew in the city. This is in response to the continued decline/low number of COVID-19 cases.
“I called up City Legal Officer Jose Sabanal to draft the executive order lifting the city’s curfew (from 11 pm to 4 am). Our cases remain low (as evidenced by the city’s health care utilization rate of 1.51 percent as of June 4) though we need to further improve our vaccination,” Moreno said.
However, despite the good news, the mayor also continues to caution the citizens, asking them to continue following health protocols.
Currently, there are four COVID-19 patients in Cagayan de Oro, and two are confined at Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC).
One patient is an eight-year-old child from Barangay Macasandig who tested positive after a swab. Unfortunately, her condition is also made severe as she is also afflicted by dengue.
Additionally, City Health Office (CHO) medical officer Dr. Ted Yu Jr. reports that the child is unvaccinated.
“Our vaccination for five to seven year olds is still low at 33 percent for first dose and 18 percent for second dose (so we have to ramp it up). We hope and pray that the child recovers from her condition,” said Mayor Moreno.
