CARMONA, Cavite – The municipal government here placed Barangay Cabilang Baybay under total lockdown after seven employees residing in two boarding houses tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) after a rapid diagnostic test (RDT).

According to the Facebook page of Mayor Roy M. Loyola, the patients were employees of a company based in Muntinlupa.

With RDT not confirmatory and not 100 percent reliable, the seven patients will undergo reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to confirm if they’re COVID-19 positive.

Though the patients are now staying in a quarantine facility, Barangay Cabilang Baybay has been placed under lockdown while contact-tracing was being done.

As of May 22, the municipality has seven confirmed COVID-10 cases, with three recovered, three in isolation facility, and one under monitoring in a private hospital.
