Today, the first case of COVID-19 positive patient in Bukidnon was confirmed by Valencia City, Bukidnon Mayor Azucena Huervas’ through her statement posted in their official Facebook Account (LGU – City of Valencia, Province of Bukidnon).
It is getting closer to home, I don’t want to panic, I don’t want to think about it, but I cannot help it. I learned about it first through my friend, she shared to me a post in Provincial Health Office-Bukidnon FB account which says that the Bukidnon Provincial Health Office confirms the first COVID-19 case in the Province of Bukidnon. So, I immediately told my family about this, that we should really continue staying at home to help flatten the curve.
The said patient is on home quarantine and extensive contact tracing is done to ensure that everyone who had close contact with the patient will also be isolated. The patient attended the derby in Matina, Davao City last March 12, 2020 in which he probably contacted the virus.
