Daily Updates on the Bulacan COVID-19 Cases from BPHO
These are the daily updates that are being reported by the Bulacan Provincial Health Office at 4pm of each day. The cases continue to increase, but at a slower rate. We can also see that the number of active cases have already started to flatten.
As we move back to Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) starting October 1, 2020, as per the announcement of President Duterte, let us work together to make sure that cases will not spike. KEEP SAFE EVERYONE!
Let us all work together through continuous practice of safety and health protocols:
- Always wash your hands with soap and water
- Maintain physical distancing
- Wear your masks properly.
- Dispose your masks properly.
- Stay at home, unless it is absolutely necessary to go out.
- Use alcohol or other types of sanitizers to sanitize your hands and surfaces.
Note: There were no updates released by Bulacan PHO on some days in September (14th, 15th, 17th, 19th, 20th, 23rd). This was the statement released by the Bulacan Provincial Health Office on those dates:
ADVISORY: Due to the data harmonization between Provincial Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (PESU) & Cities/Municipalities Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (C/MESU), our office will not be posting Bulacan COVID-19 Updates tonight and in the next few days. Thank you for understanding and support.
