- Some suspected carriers of COVID-19 did not reveal their actual health status to doctors at the Fabella Hospital
- They eventually got mixed with other patients at the regular ward
- The patients were then tested for coronavirus infection and thankfully they were negative
- Those who interacted with them, despite the negative results, were requested to immediately see their doctors if they notice any symptoms
A number of suspected carriers of COVID-19 were mixed at the regular ward after they lied about their actual health statuses.
According to an ABS-CBN report, they lied so that they could give birth at Fabella Hospital, which is a state-run hospital.
Dr. Antoinette Pacapac, the spokesperson of Fabella, stated that more or less, there were 10 patients who lied about symptoms like not having a fever or cough.
The patients who concealed their symptoms were eventually transferred to an isolation ward.
Those who have interacted with the patients were also tasked to see a doctor in case they feel unwell.
The chief of medical center, Dr. Esmeraldo Ilem, revealed that there were patients who lied so that they could give birth at the said hospital.
In a previous report by KAMI, the government faced problems when they imposed the initial community quarantine, which was elevated into the now ongoing enhanced community quarantine. It also suspended transportation causing massive problems with commuters.
The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
