DAVAO CITY—Davao de Oro Governor Jayvee Tyron L. Uy announced Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19 on January 18.

He said Dr. Antonio Ybiernas Jr., the provincial health officer, has advised him to isolate between seven and 10 days and that he is planning to maximize the isolation period.

He was the third among the five governors of Davao Region to have suffered from the infection after Governor Nelson Dayanghirang of Davao Oriental was hit in May, and Douglas Cagas in June. Cagas eventually died from the infection.
