  1. Testing shows that 10% are infected.
    Cebu City has about 1 million residents.
    That means that at least 100k people just by breathing, laughing, talking… in Cebu City are spreading this airborn virus!

    Any wonder why the number of infected people is rising so fast?

    Virus spread during holidays continues increasing like a snowball going downhill.

    The only way to stop this spread is for all people to keep 5 meter distance from all others!
