The City Public Information Office credited the high number of cases to the intensified mass testing being conducted by the local government to those individuals suspected to have contracted the disease.

“Ang pagtaas sa bilang ng new cases ay resulta ng pinaigting nating mass testing sa mga suspect case para matukoy natin ang mga COVID-19 positive at magawa ang mga susunod na kinakailangang hakbang o maibigay ang agarang kaukulang gamutan,” it said.

(The increase in the number of new cases is a result of our intensified mass testing of suspected cases so that we can identify the COVID-19 positives and take the next necessary steps or provide immediate treatment.)

Mayor Carmelita Abalos said 162 individuals were tested by the roving team from the City Health Department on Thursday.

“153 sa kanila ay health workers, 7 ay barangay staff at 2 COVID-19 positive patients na re-swabbing (153 of them were health workers, 7 were barangay staff and 2 COVID-19 positive patients were re-swabbed),” said Abalos in Facebook post.
