Cagayan de Oro City recorded its first-ever case of coronavirus (COVID-19) on March 11, 2020, and the numbers have changed radically since then. Despite its spike of cases in mid-2020, the city health officials, in cooperation with the local government, managed to keep the number of cases low for most of the first year of the pandemic. But because of this, citizens have gradually shifted to complacency resulting in a big blow of active cases this year.
The city experienced its second and third waves of infections, which in a way, became a motivation for the population to get their COVID-19 vaccinations. And it worked because, by the end of October, new cases significantly dropped, bringing us here today.
Continuing its daily press briefing initiative to keep Kagay-anons posted to the COVID-19 cases in the city, the City Health Office (CHO) reported one new COVID-19 case on Thursday, December 30.
With the new addition, the city now has a cumulative total of 20,446 cases, with 15 active cases, 851 deaths, and 19,580 recovered patients.
Of the active cases, nine are admitted to Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC), while six others stay at the Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility (TTMF).
