Latest data from the Provincial Health Office (PHO) indicated that 333 cases are under home quarantine, 81 are confined to hospitals, while 31 are in the local government units’ (LGUs) temporary treatment and monitoring facilities.

The data also indicated that 96.85 percent cases are in mild or asymptomatic condition while 2.92 percent are moderate, severe to critical condition.
