Breaking Cebu City News! 29 COVID19 Cases in Barangay Labangon, Cebu City
As of today, April 24, 2020, there are 29 COVID19 Cases in Barangay Labangon, with most of the cases coming from Sitio Callejon.
Again, the surge in the number of cases in the barangay is largely because we have conducted extensive contact tracing and targeted mass testing. In fact, to date, our CHD has collected more than 500 samples in Sitio Callejon and the surrounding sitios.
We emphasize the need to do surveillance, screening, monitoring and targeted mass testing. Data is necessary in order for us to determine the measures we need to adopt in the prevention of the spread of COVID19.
Yesterday, we pulled out the first batch of COVID19 patients and transferred them to Labangon Elementary School. We will transfer the rest of the patients tonight.
So far, these patients remain to be either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Our City Health Department is committed in monitoring their status and providing treatment to them. Reported mayor of the Cebu City Edgar Labella
