However, local health authorities said the patients have already recovered.

In an earlier interview, Dr. Mary Jean Loreche, chief pathologist of DOH-7, said the DOH-7 is not discounting the possibility that Bohol already has a community transmission of the variant.

A total of six Delta variants have been detected in Bohol this month.

The local government continues to call on residents to adhere to the health protocols and get vaccinated against COVID-19.

As of Tuesday, Bohol reported 1,842 active cases.
