Cabadbaran City is once again technically free of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), after all seven patients, who had tested positive for coronavirus, have now recovered, according to a city announcement on Wednesday (Aug. 12 ).
Mayor Judy Chin Amante, however, cautioned residents not to be complacent, saying the virus remains a threat.
Amante reiterated the need for people to strictly observe all health protocols like wearing a mask, physical distancing, and frequent hand washing, among others, to contain the spread of the virus.
