The month of March started promising enough as the SARS-COV-2 confirmed cases went.

The city, thus far, had kept the numbers at single digits, and the National Inter-Agency Task Force has placed the city on extended Modified General Community Quarantine – one step closer to the New Normal – and officials delivering news that the vaccine is out and ready to be distributed.

And then came the double digits.
