    first_imgClose contacts of Patient No. 585 would be tested. As of yesterday, 40 residents have submitted specimens for testing. Mayor Elvira Alarcon said the lockdown covered 64 houses. The lockdown started on Monday, July 13, hours after the resident’s test result was released by the Department of Health (DOH) Region 6. Alarcon ordered policemen to guard the entrance and exit points of the housing project. ILOILO – The municipality of Batad locked down for five days a housing project after a resident tested positive for coronavirus disease  2019 (COVID-19). The patient was a farm worker. She had fever and cough on June 28. The local government unit (LGU) of Batad would provide the needs of the locked down families such as food and water, among others. The COVID-19-positive resident was a 56-year-old female (Patient No. 585) now confined at the Western Visayas Medical Center (WVMC) in Mandurriao, Iloilo City. The patient had herself checked by a doctor on June 30 at the Jesus Colmenares District Hospital in Balasan, Iloilo. She was diagnosed with community-acquire pneumonia (moderate risk). During the lockdown, said Alarcon, there would be contact tracing. On July 8 she insisted on going home despite having fever. The next day she consulted a private doctor. She had difficulty breathing and had allergy. She was eventually taken to WVMC where she was tested. “Wala man sia sang may ginkadtoan, sa uma man kag tapos sa baybay,” said Alarcon./PNlast_img read more
