Up to five positive cases of COVID-19 throughout the Cordillera region have been reported.
According to the latest data from the Baguio City Health Services Office, earlier this afternoon, four laboratory-confirmed COVID cases in Baguio were reported while two were presumptive positive and one died.
The third case was a 23-year-old man from Baguio who arrived in the city on March 13 from Pasig.
He had symptoms on March 16 and had self-quarantine and consulted on March 23 because of the constant itchiness of his throat.
He was admitted to a Level 3 hospital in the city and is in stable condition as well as the second and fourth COVID-19 positive cases of Baguio.
It will be recalled that the first COVID-positive case in the Cordillera Region came from Abra, a Filipino seaman in the UAE who is also in stable condition.
For now, the DOH-Cordillera is awaiting the results of a lab test of two persons under investigation in the region that have died.
Meanwhile, Baguio Mayor Benjamin Magalong personally visited the city's problematic barangays to see residents' compliance with Enhanced Community Quarantine policies and city hygiene laws.
Earlier, the mayor locked down Barangay Pinget last night as he warned Barangay San Carlos Heights and Barangay Quezon Hill Extension of the same fate if they failed to comply with community quarantine policy.
