Garbo: Focus now on Mabalacat’s recovery rate as vaxx rate peaks
As the vaccination rate peaks, Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo said the city government was now more focused toward improving the recovery rate from Covid-19.
The mayor said the high vaccination rate was to thank for rapidly declining number of Covid-19 cases in the city.
“Malaki po ang ambag ng mga bakunang ating ipinamamahagi sa patuloy na pagbaba ng kaso sa Mabalacat City,” Garbo said.
“Hindi po tumigil ang pamahalaang lungsod sa vaccination program nito, bagkus ay higit pa natin itong pinalawig upang ating matamasa ang inaasam na herd immunity lalo na ngayong patapos na ang taon,” the mayor said.
“Higit sa pagbaba ng mga kaso, mas nakatutok po ang MCG sa pagpapataas ng ating recovery rate sa siyudad dahil nangangahulugan po ito na maraming Mabalaqueños po ang ating nailigtas mula sa tiyak na kapahamakan,” Garbo said.
DPWH completes road repairs in 2 Nueva Ecija towns
Officials announced on Tuesday the completion of road improvement works in Jaen and Gen. Tinio towns in Nueva Ecija province.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said it was done with upgrades of roads in the two municipalities in Nueva Ecija’s fourth district.
Nueva Ecija second district’s engineering chief Elpidio Trinidad said the four road improvement projects were implemented in Barangays Magsalisi in Jaen and Rio Chico in Gen. Tinio town, according to a Punto Central Luzon report.
Trinidad said the projects gave residents better access to local markets and other government services, including health centers, educational institutions, public transportation, and other public utilities.
The road improvements spanned 10 kilometers and cost P32.771 million, according to the agency’s information office.
