March 14, 2021 Uncategorized

TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, June 17 (PIA) – – The province of Nueva Vizcaya after 47 days of being COVID-19-positive-free has recorded new confirmed case yesterday, an official of the Department of Health (DOH) here confirmed.

In a statement of Dr. Leticia Cabrera, DOH Local Health Support Division chief said Patient 44 is a 34-year-old male from Diadi town. He is an Overseas Filipino Worker who arrived from Saudi Arabia last May 20.

She said the patient travelled from Manila to his hometown last June 7 and he was traced to have an exposure with a positive case from Lagawe, Ifugao that is why he was subjected to a swab test which turned positive yesterday.

“At the moment he has no symptoms or he is asymptomatic but he was already transferred to Region 2 Trauma and Medical Center for appropriate care and medication,” Cabrera said.

She also said contact tracing is now being undertaken to determine the individuals who have close contact with him since his arrival period.

Cabrera also urged those who possibly have contact with the said patient to cooperate with the surveillance team and contact tracers.

She further advised public to be vigilant and be careful as the fight versus COVID-19 is still not yet over. (MDCT/OTB/PIA 2-Cagayan)
