OLONGAPO CITY –– After two days of no new cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in this city, two medical front-liners were the latest to get infected, officials said.

Mayor Rolen Paulino Jr. said the patients are a 29-year-old female health worker and a 32-year-old male resident physician trainee.


They both underwent a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction test on Feb. 13.

The female health worker has a history of asthma, Paulino said.


“She had some episodes of palpitation and shortness of breath for months, which she experienced again last Feb. 10 and 11,” Paulino said in a statement.

The male resident physician trainee developed coughs and colds followed by fever on Feb. 12. He immediately took a leave from his work and had himself isolated.

As of Feb. 14, the city has 1,051 total COVID-19 cases. Six of these are active cases, 1,000 are recoveries, and 45 are deaths.
