Cavite has 5th COVID-19 case in Bacoor City
SAN PEDRO CITY –– Cavite recorded its fifth case of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) since the surge of infection hit Metro Manila and adjacent provinces.
Cavite Governor Juanito Victor Remulla on Wednesday said the patient is a 48-year-old male resident of Bacoor City.
The patient had been admitted to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in Muntinlupa City.
In the same Facebook post, Remulla said he had been tested for the virus after learning he had been exposed to a person with mild fever during a meeting last Monday.
He said he had gone into home quarantine and would be working from home, pending the result of the test that may come out in five days./lzb
