CARMONA, Cavite – The municipality recorded its eighth confirmed case of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on Wednesday, May 28.
According to the municipal government, C-Patient No. 8 is a 65-year-old male and is the husband of C-Patient No. 6 and father of C-Patient No. 4. He is currently staying in an isolation facility.
“Magsilbi po sanang aral sa ating lahat ito na maaaring magkahawaan sa ating sariling tahanan na kahit nasa bahay ay dapat sinusunod pa din natin ng husto ang social distancing at proper hygiene lalo na kung tayo ay nanggaling sa labas,” Mayor Roy M. Loyola said in a Facebook post.
C-Patient 8 is a resident of Barangay Cabilang Baybay, which was placed in a total lockdown on May 23 after seven employees residing in two boarding houses tested positive for COVID-19.
The barangay lockdown was later lifted and changed to localized lockdown in San Pedro St. and part of Purok 5 Kanluran.
Carmona has previously recorded seven other confirmed COVID-19 cases, with five recoveries, and two patients in an isolation facility.
