Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio reiterated the big difference between getting vaccinated and not as 91.13 percent of Davao City’s active cases of Covid-19 from September 5 to 11, 2021 are reported as unvaccinated.
The mayor said out of Davao City’s new Covid-19 cases of 3,304 from September 5 to 11, 2021 or morbidity week 36 of 2021, 91.13 percent were unvaccinated while 8.86 (293) were vaccinated.
“The unvaccinated is 91.13 percent and then gusto tag breakdown, kining data paunsa nato pagrelate sa atoang regular daily life? Makita nato numbers ni sya nga gikuha nato sa positive cases nato sa Covid-19. Dunay dako nga diperensya kung vaccinated ka o unvaccinated ka. This should guide us nga magdecide magpabakuna na,” the mayor said via Davao City Disaster Radio (DCDR).
Mayor Sara added that out of the 293 vaccinated Covid-19 cases, 148 received Sinovac vaccine; 72 AstraZeneca; 62 Pfizer, six with Moderna; four were jabbed with Johnson and Johnson; one had Sputnik.
The mayor explained that the city logged more Covid-19 cases administered with Sinovac as the city rolled out more Sinovac vaccines.
Meanwhile, the city recorded 59 deaths from September 5 to 11 and of this number, 55 or 93.22 percent were unvaccinated while four or 6.77 were vaccinated. Of the four vaccinated deaths, two got Sinovac jabs while the other two received Pfizer shots. Some vaccinated individuals who either become severe or critical Covid-19 cases and eventually die usually have not yet received their second doses.
“Dili na ta kinahanglan mupili og bakuna because there’s that chance sa tanang klase sa bakuna nga magpositive gihapon ka sa Covid-19. Ang importante lang dapat masabtan sa tanan dili ta severe or critical case nga kinahanglan ta musulod dinha sa ospital og magpakitabang sa atong mga doctors og mga health care workers nga overwhelmed na, gikapoy na sila, wala na silay pahulay, nangahadlok na sila. And in fact, very recently, namatyan sila diha sa SPMC og health care worker,” the mayor said.
Mayor Sara also warned vaccinated Dabawenyos not to be complacent in going out for social gatherings since 90 percent of the city’s population is not yet vaccinated.
The mayor reminded the public to still observe the minimum public health standards such as wearing of face mask, frequent hand washing, and social distancing to help prevent infection of Covid-19.
