From 365 active infections on Sunday, its tally increased to 439 on Tuesday, or 0.17 percent of the overall confirmed cases of 263,118.

In a statement, the City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (CESU) reminded residents to continue observing the minimum health protocols like avoiding crowded places, maintaining one to two-meter physical distancing, frequent use of alcohol or washing of hands, and wearing face masks.

As the city remains under “yellow” status amid the rising number of Covid-19 cases, QCESU chief Dr. Rolando Cruz earlier said there was a possibility that Covid-19 cases would spike further within the next two weeks.
