Of 43 people who were already tested, the four turned out positive. Meanwhile, 80 more will undergo swab test tomorrow, according to the local government.

The local government warned that the names and addresses of the remaining 164 unverified people who have refused and will refuse to answer calls from contact tracers “shall be endorsed” to Caloocan Police Station – Contact Tracers for house visit and ground contact tracing process.

The business permit of Gubat sa Ciudad was revoked by Mayor Oca Malapitan on May 10 after authorities found around 500 guests there a day before.
