FEATURED STORIES

Of the total number of patients in the city, 14 recovered and 15 died.

Meanwhile, the city has seven active probable cases of COVID-19 and 172 active suspect cases.

According to the Department of Health (DOH), the classification for COVID-19 cases was revised to ensure the “uniform reporting” of cases nationwide.

A suspect case now refers to someone who suffers from fever, cough or sore throat two weeks after he had come in contact with a confirmed case or had visited place with local transmission of COVID-19.

Besides showing symptoms, a suspect case is one or more of the following: elderly, some with preexisting ailments, pregnant, or a health care worker.

A probable case is a person whose COVID-19 results are uncertain, having been tested in an unofficial laboratory that does RT-PCR test.

So far, the DOH has recorded 5,233 confirmed COVID-19 cases, of whom 295 have recovered and  335 have died.
