A resident of Baguio City who reportedly never left home since quarantine measures were put in place still tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease.

The 77-year-old male stroke victim received visitors in his residence, however, including a nephew who was in the city for a short vacation from Thailand, according to his wife.

He was one of two new cases reported in the city on Wednesday, April 15, bringing the city's total cases to 17.

City residents earlier hoped they contained the coronavirus outbreak when no new cases were reported for up to 13 days. The two new cases followed a 46-year-old female streetsweeper who tested postive for COVID-19 on April 10.
