COVID-19 Watch: Cagayan de Oro begins the first week of 2022 with 101 new COVID-19 cases

As the holiday season wraps up, the number of new COVID-19 cases in Cagayan de Oro has also doubled. The city has recorded 101 new COVID-19 cases between January 1 and 7. This surge is mainly due to people gathering to celebrate Christmas and welcome 2022.

Due to the increase in the Average Daily Attack Rate (ADAR), residents in Cagayan de Oro are being warned to remain watchful. According to the City Health Office's most recent figures, the two-week growth rate jumped to 50% on January 2, 2022, from -50 percent on December 28, 2021.

As a result, everyone is always urged to observe fundamental public health rules, such as wearing a face mask and social separation, particularly while in a crowded environment and hand washing. Mayor Oscar Moreno anticipates that the city's current alert level 2 status will be maintained and that the matter will not be increased.

Mayor Moreno has advocated for an increase in vaccination for city residents and citizens of adjacent provinces in light of the threat posed by the Omicron variant. Additionally, Moreno stated that they would accommodate residents of adjacent provinces who wish to have their first, second, or booster vaccinations in Cagayan de Oro.
