Critical-risk barangays for Covid-19 in Davao City down to zero

The number of critical risk barangays in Davao City is now down to zero even as the city remains classified as moderate risk for coronavirus disease.

Four weeks ago, from January 17 to January 22, the number of critical risk barangays shot up to 18 and further increased to 74 during the period from January 24 to January 29, and 105 from January 31 to February 5.

As the city government intensifies Covid-19 response such as a frequent reminder of the basic health measures and getting vaccinated, the number of critical risk barangays started to decrease last week – February 7 to February 12 period.

This week, February 14-19, the COVID-19 Task Force listed two high-risk barangays – Kilate and Tagurano in Toril District while there are still 59 moderate risk barangays. The full list of barangays Covid-19 risk classification can be accessed on the City Government of Davao Facebook Page.

Meantime, the city remains under Moderate Risk with a “Low” two-week growth rate at -81.13, and a “High” Average Daily Attack Rate (ADAR) at 8.87. This is lower compared to the data as of February 5 with a -34.7 2-week growth rate classification and a 24.16 or “high” Average Daily Attack Rate for coronavirus.

Given this downtrend situation, Dabawenyos are still reminded to strictly follow minimum public standards, get vaccinated, or avail of the booster dose because the possible rise of cases may happen anytime. CIO
