16 COVID-19 cases recorded in CAR

The Department of Health-Cordillera has recorded 16 positive cases of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) as confirmed by laboratory tests done by the Regional Institute of Tropical Medicine.

STAY AT HOME -- Home quarantine remains the best preventive measure against the local transmission of the Covid-19 pandemic which is why the Police Regional Office-Cordillera with the help of police auxiliaries and barangay officials are strictly implementing the 24-hour curfew to discourage residents from going out of their homes during the enhanced community quarantine. In Baguio, police implement the lockdown at Barangay Pinget while the Itogon Municipal Police Station turned creative in emphasizing the importance of staying at home.

As cases of the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) continue to increase, more groups and individuals are heeding the calls of the frontliners, particularly health workers and medical personnel, for personal protective equipment donations.

Benguet legislative caretaker, Rep. Eric Go Yap of ACT-CIS party-list, is not infected with the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) as earlier announced.

Police help eyed in contact tracing

To speed up the process of tracing individuals who have had contact with confirmed coronavirus disease patients, City Mayor Benjamin Magalong plans to employ applicable techniques used by the police in interviewing witnesses or sources.


Baguio Mayor Benjamin Magalong has ordered the total lockdown of Barangay Pinget after its officials failed to implement the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) measures des-pite warnings.

DONATIONS FROM SAMARITANS -- The city government of Baguio continues to receive food items from various groups such as the Baguio Filipino-Chinese community, which donated P1.6 million worth of food items, which are being distributed to various barangays in the city in wake of the enhanced community quarantine due to the Covid-19. Repacking of relief items is done at the PFVR gymnasium.
