BREAKING: Benguet records 93 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 today.
74 were reported from Itogon, 14 from La Trinidad, two each from Tuba and Buguias, and one from Sablan.
This is the highest single-day number of infection the province has recorded.
The sudden increase of cases in Itogon are residents of the following sitios and barangays:
Eastern saddle, Ampucao
These are all thickly populated mining areas. We highly suspect that transmission happened inside bunkhouses of several mining companies since infected individuals are mostly workers/miners with their family members living with them.
Above-mentioned sitios are now on lockdown, concentrated on infected bunkhouses by their respective barangay officials and mining companies.
Itogon MHSO are now expediting further contact tracing for isolation and swab testing.
Furthermore, Gov Diclas called for an emergency meeting tomorrow with PHO and DOH-CAR to help our municipality in containing this sudden surge.
