77-year-old man from Maria Basa Barangay, Baguio City, was admitted to Baguio General Hospital on April 6 as a stroke patient. But test results Tuesday showed he is positive for COVID-19.
The origin of transmission is still unknown, but the patient’s wife said they were visited by a relative from abroad.
Aggressive contact tracing is under way to determine if other people might have been exposed to the patient before he was admitted to the hospital, according to the mayor’s office.
