Baguio City and its neighboring towns will enforce stricter border control before the end of this week. The scheme is said to regulate the additional increase of COVID-19 cases listed in the said city.

According to Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong, the border control for Baguio ceased on December 4 but he consulted the neighboring mayors to also implement border control in their respective constituencies.

The border control will be implemented for 14 days to reduce the number of deadly virus cases, as it is predicted that COVID-19 cases in the city are likely to increase, especially as the holiday season approaches.

So far, Baguio has 301 active cases of COVID-19 that allegedly came from neighboring towns. The mayor added that coronavirus infections do not appear in their link analysis.

Meanwhile, Baguio is set to increase the city's isolation installations in preparation for the post-holiday surge.
