CDO City logs 2 COVID-19 cases for June 28


Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City reported four new cases of the coronavirus disease on Sunday, June 28.

During the press briefing Monday, June 29, City Epidemiologist Dr. Joselito Retuya said out of the four new cases, two were APORS (non-CDO residents) which have now been removed from the City’s official census by the Department of Health. This brings down the total of confirmed cases in the city to 31 instead of 33.

“Just this morning… DOH already informed us that these two APORS, kay dile man siya (because they are not) originally from Cagayan de Oro, will be taken out from our census of the confirmed cases. And that will leave our total confirmed cases to 31,” City Health Office – OIC Dr. Lorraine Nery added.

Onto the additional cases, the 30th case is a 19-year-old female locally stranded individual (LSI) from Manila. Residing in Barangay Puerto, she arrived in the city on June 16 and is currently under the City Isolation Unit (CIU).

Meanwhile, the 31st case is a male returning overseas Filipino (ROF) from Saudi Arabia. He arrived in the City via air transportation on June 10 and took the swab test on June 24.

He was discharged from the CIU after completing his quarantine and went home to his residence in Barangay Nazareth. His swab test came back positive on June 28.

With this, a portion of Upper 20 Nazareth will be placed under a focus containment as a precaution.
