MANILA, Philippines — There are now seven confirmed cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in San Juan City, mayor Francis Zamora said Wednesday.


“As of 6 p.m. last night, San Juan has seven confirmed COVID-19 (cases),” Zamora disclosed during the weekly Kapihan sa Manila Bay forum in Manila.

Two out of the seven cases, according to Zamora, had a history of travel to Bali, Indonesia. They are a couple— a 69-year-old female and a 70-year-old male.


Other patients include a 64-year- old male from Barangay Greenhills; a 28-year-old female from Barangay Maytunas; a 72-year-old male living in Barangay Little Baguio who had no history of travel to any COVID-19-positive location; a 30-year old female resident of Barangay West Crame; and a 51-year old female resident of Barangay Corazon de Jesus.

Zamora also disclosed that out of the seven confirmed, four visited the prayer room that was frequented by the fifth confirmed case of the coronavirus.

That prayer room, located in Barangay Greenhills, was sanitized after the confirmed COVID-19 case was reported.

“Hopefully, it stops there… They are all in private hospitals, but they are all in stable condition,” Zamora said.

As of Wednesday, the total confirmed cases of COVID-19 is now at 33. Zamora later clarified that the seven cases are included in the overall number.
