Breaking Cebu News! COVID-19 Central Visayas 63 new cases Update 25 April 2020
The Department of Health Central Visayas Center for Health Development (DOH CVCHD) through the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center Sub-National Laboratory (VSMMC SNL) has released, as of 5:00 pm today, one hundred twenty four (124) test results of which there are sixty-three (63) positive results. Total confirmed cases in the region now at four hundred fifty-nine (459). Number of reported deaths remains at ten (10).
Yesterday, the total cases in Cebu City was recorded at three hundred fifty (350). However, it was found out that the Cebu City Health Department personnel, who collected the swab samples, tagged it according to the patient’s information and labelled a sample with another family name of a previously confirmed case. This patient was already recorded in the regional data but due to the different name tagged in the repeat test, he was recorded twice. We have already adjusted the numbers attributed to Cebu City after validating and cross checking if the person recorded yesterday and the one claimed to be him previously are one and the same. The official total number of cases for 24 April 2020 for Cebu City is at three hundred forty-nine (349). The DOH CVCHD is heavily dependent on the data collected by our local health authorities, and as such, any errors that may come to their attention that may affect our number of cases are being relayed to us for appropriate correction.
