JUST IN: A family and their close contacts in Talubin, Bontoc have been ordered to be put under lock-down following an anonymous report that a four-year-old patient with congenital heart disease and who has been tested positive of the COVID-19 tagged as patient Mankayan Case 263 has gone missing in an isolation facility in Lepanto, Mankayan. The child was swabbed last December 3 and the RT-PCR test result released on Dec. 6 revealed a positive result.

Per investigation, the child was allegedly smuggled out from Lepanto and was brought home to Talubin on Dec. 7. The mother allegedly bought her two children home surreptitiously; hence, the search for their whereabouts.

According to reports, the family rode in commuter vans plying Mankayan - Abatan, Buguias, Abatan, Buguias - Bontoc and a commuter van plying Bontoc to Banaue.

With the tip on the patient "smuggling," Bontoc LGU was able to immediately act on it. Per latest update, the child will be brought to the COVID-19 ward at the Bontoc General Hospital.

In view of the foregoing, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) appeals to all the unidentified passengers who have been in the same vehicle with the mother and her two children to immediately isolate themselves and to contact their nearest health facilities for advice and proper action. The PDRRMC also enjoins the drivers of the concerned commuter vans to immediately report to their respective municipal health offices.

This is a developing story via Mountain Province DRRM Office.
