Dgte health ofc: No more COVID-19 suspects
DUMAGUETE CITY, April 17 (PIA) — Dumaguete City Health Office (DCHO) reported Tuesday that none of the remaining 17 persons under monitoring (PUM) have shown influenza like illness (ILI) symptoms.
According to Dr. Sarah Talla of DCHO, as soon as their 14-day quarantine is completed without incident, they will be given medical certificate and fit to work certificate.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, chairperson of the Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19, lauded the local health industry and the dedication of the health workers and other frontliners for keeping the local community free from COVID-19.
With this, the city government is actively procuring more medical supplies, personnel protective equipment for the frontliners, and setting up the community isolation center that is ready for occupancy when the need arises.
Remollo also observed that many citizens comply with the stay-at-home policy of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) based on the footage from the CCTV camera command centers.
This is noted especially at night when the curfew is imposed at 9:00 p.m.
The city’s CCTV cameras are used to monitor and identify violators of the ECQ.
Meanwhile, personnel of the Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 continue to monitor the streets 24/7 and noted the light traffic in the day and almost empty streets at night.
All motorists submit themselves for thermal screening and present quarantine passes in the various checkpoints across the city. (jct/PIA7 Negros Oriental with reports from CPIO Dems Demcillo)
