The Quezon City government posted on their Facebook account that as of 8 a.m. on Tuesday, there are 6,370 active Covid-19 cases or equivalent to 7.5 percent.
The total number of Covid-19 cases is 84,611 since the pandemic started as validated by the CESU and the city’s district health offices.
“Dumadaan sa validation ng CESU, health center staff at mga opisyal ng barangay ang datos na mula sa DOH para masigurong sila ay residente ng QC (The CESU, health center staff, and barangay officials validates these data from the DOH to check if they are indeed residents of QC),”, the QC government post read.
