April 17, 2020

BAGUIO CITY -- City Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong yesterday said two new Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients on Thursday stepped out and identified themselves to help in contact tracing.

Magalong said Jonover David, the 33-year-old nurse at the Baguio General Hospital and resident of Woodsgate Subdivision Camp 7 barangay and Albert Bumal-o, the 77-year-old male stroke patient from Maria Basa, Pacdal who were diagnosed with the disease agreed to cooperate with the government in its effort to save lives by revealing their identities.

Most of David’s activities were confined at his home and at the hospital as duty nurse at the Medical Intensive Care Unit/Coronary Care Unit of the BGHMC except for a meeting at a friend’s house on April 1.

Bumal-o meanwhile also stayed at home most of the time.

Most of their contacts had been traced but they are encouraging persons whom they had contact with to go on self-quarantine or seek medical help if they develop symptoms.
