Another Baguio COVID patient comes out
March 30, 2020
An expatriate vacationing in the city who tested positive for Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) today came out into the open to warn those he may have come in contact with.
Rafael Serrano, 59, of Amistad, Camp 7 who is on vacation from New York USA was the fourth patient to respond to Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s call to save lives by disclosing their identities to speed up contact tracing and help stop the spread of the virus.
He developed COVID symptoms on March 16 after flying in from Bangkok, Thailand on March 12.
He went to several establishments in the city on March 16 and had a family celebration on March 19.
He went for physical therapy at the SLU Hospital of the Sacred Heart on March 20-22 and was admitted at the Baguio General Hospital on March 27.
His results came out last March 28, 2020.
The City Epidemiological Surveillance Unit team from the City Health Services Office has rounded up persons he had interacted with in those occasions and is encouraging others around him from March 14 to undertake self-quarantine.
The mayor appealed to the other patients to do the same as their contribution to the city’s multi-pronged efforts to contain the contagion. – PIO
