City Health Office calls anew for vigilance and discipline vs COVID

BAGUIO CITY, Oct. 15 (PIA) - - The City Health Services Offices (HSO) reminds the public anew not to put their guards down and remain vigilant against the Coronavirus disease by continuously adhering to the minimum health standards needed to protect themselves and their families.

 

City Health Officer Dr. Rowena Galpo,   in the City Hall Ugnayan media forum on Wednesday, stressed the need for people to learn to live with the virus by balancing health/safety with their daily life routine as COVID – 19 remains in our midst.

Galpo shared that the city still expects more cases with the intensified contact tracing and continuing expanded risk-based testing being conducted.  She reiterated Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s call for discipline and responsible behavior in the fight against COVID – 19.

City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit Chief Dr. Donnabel Tubera – Panes, in the same forum, advised the public to never put their guards down and treat everybody as if they are positive to protect themselves and their families from possible infection.

Panes affirmed that community and household infection is already happening and   bringing home the virus is dangerous for the older people, pregnant women and to those who are medically compromised.

She shared that based on the contact tracing of the clustering of cases at the Slaughterhouse barangay, 104 individuals were infected and cases include family members of those working in the  butchering area and city veterinary office in said barangay.

As of October 13 data of the City HSO, there are already 1,454 confirmed cases in Baguio, where 495 are active, 942  have already recovered and 17 deaths.

For the 17 death cases, Panes  said  all had  co-morbidity conditions, two were  post mortem (tested positive after death) and 12 were  60 years old and above.

There are 269 mild and asymptomatic cases currently confined at the City Community Quarantine/isolation facilities at the   Sto. Niño Hospital and the Roxas Hall and   Hernandez Hall at Teachers Camp. (JDP/CDD-PIA CAR)
