Records from the Department of Health (DOH) revealed that the number of confirmed positive coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) cases in Quezon City jumped to 464 as of 1 p.m. of April 2.

This DOH figure is in stark contrast to the current 174 validated COVID-19 cases of the Quezon City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (QCESU).

The Quezon City Health Department (QCHD) attributed the sudden rise of COVID-19 cases in the locality to the database access provided by the DOH to local health officials.

As the extreme upswing in the number of COVID-19 cases triggered alarm, the QCHD clarified that the raw data from the DOH is “still subject to the validation’’ of the QCESU, health center officers and barangay officials.

The QCHD explained that the validation is vital as this will ensure that the patients are actual Quezon City residents with corrections being made if needed as the city carefully verifies each case.

Based on DOH records, the total number of cases with complete addresses in Quezon City now stands at 310.

The additional cases with complete addresses and are still subject for validation are from the following barangays:
