Two health workers from Dagupan City were discharged from the Region 1 Medical Center (R1MC) on Tuesday, April 14 as both recovered from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Dagupan City Information Office said, PH2329 and PH2331, were declared COVID-19-free after their repeat swab test results were negative.
This was confirmed by Dr. Ophelia Rivera, the city’s COVID-19 focal person.
Mayor Brian Lim was thankful that two of the city’s positive cases have now tested negative and are free of COVID-19.
“God is good all the time,” said Lim in a Twitter post.
PH2329, a 37-year-old male, R1MC employee from Barangay Bonuan Gueset, was found positive for COVID-19, on a laboratory test result released on March 31.
It was learned that he was exposed to a COVID-19 patient from Rosales town who was brought to the hospital earlier that month. He was quarantined at R1MC.
On the other hand, PH2331 is a 50-year-old female health worker from Barangay Lucao. She tested positive for COVID-19 in a laboratory test released on March 31.
She works in another hospital and had no history of travel but was exposed to her husband who traveled to Metro Manila.
Meanwhile, Dr. Rivera said the remaining three of the six COVID-19 cases were already symptom-free and were just awaiting their repeat swab test result.
