Davao City ready to shift to Alert Level 1, says Mayor Sara


Davao City is ready if the national government will decide to place it under Alert Level 1, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said.

Citing data from the Department of Health (DOH, the local chief executive said that as of November 21, the city has recorded only three new cases of Covid-19, bringing its total number active cases to 302.

With the dramatic drop in the number of Covid-19 cases, Duterte-Carpio said the city is prepared to shift from current Alert Level 2 to Level 1, the most relaxed alert level.

“If we made it in the qualification, we would gladly accept it,” she said.

But in the meantime, the mayor reminded the Dabawenyos that non-essential gatherings like Christmas parties remain prohibited in the city.

“We do not know if there will be changes once we are placed in Alert Level 1. But in our Alert Level 2, parties are not included in MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events) events as per the report of the Covid-19 prevention and enforcement group,” Duterte-Carpio said. #
