Twenty-three poblacion barangays in Bacolod City have had no COVID-19 cases in the last two weeks, covering the period from October 28 to November 10.
This was disclosed by Executive Director Em Legaspi Ang of the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force in a report to EOC-TF chair, Mayor Evelio Leonardia, and Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran, head of the local Inter-Agency Task Force, on Wednesday, November 10.
