ALAMINOS CITY — Four new cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in different towns and cities in Pangasinan were reported on Sunday, authorities said.

Records from the Pangasinan Provincial Health Office showed that the fresh cases involved a 52-year-old female patient in Alaminos City and an 18-year old male patient in Urbiztondo. Both came from Metro Manila.

In Natividad town, the new case is a 29-year old man who had traveled from Sta. Rosa, Laguna while the new patient in San Fabian town is the mother of an infected firefighter assigned in Taguig, Metro Manila.


“You may notice that most confirmed cases have travel history to (Metro) Manila or abroad,” said Orpheus Velasco, provincial information officer.


The Hundred Islands National Park in this city had just reopened on July 1 when the 52-year old locally stranded individual (LSI) from Quezon City tested positive for COVID-19 on July 4 through a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.

Three other Alaminos City residents who came from National Capital Region and Region 3 were tested positive for the virus through rapid tests.

The LSI from Quezon City was tested right after she was fetched by the Pangasinan Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office on July 3 and stayed at home while waiting for the results.

She was asymptomatic and was isolated from his family members who are scheduled to undergo the RT-PCR test.
