Sorongon said all the faculty and students of the Alangilan National High School are fully vaccinated and classes are being conducted in two batches every day with a maximum of 20 students per batch.

EOC-TF executive director Em Ang said the implementation of the pilot run will be the basis for the expansion of the limited face to face classes to other schools in the city.

Sorongon also expressed optimism that Bacolod will attain herd immunity before Christmas eve or before the end of the year.

Bacolod has inoculated about 70,752 vaccinees way above the 66,171 target during the 3-day “Bayanihan Bakunahan” campaign last November 29, 30 and December 1, Sorongon said.

They expect to fully vaccinate 90 to 95 percent of the population after the second part of the “Bayanihan Bakunahan” set on December 15 to 17 to include 70,752 who are scheduled to receive their second dose. Only 13 percent are not vaccinated, he said.

Sorongon said that as of yesterday, Bacolod has recorded zero deaths. They also saw a decline in mortality rate from October and November and that they are hoping Bacolod will be able to remain in Alert Level 2 or be placed under Alert Level 1 in 2022.
