THE number of persons under investigation (PUIs) admitted at the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) has gone down to nine as of Monday, April 6, with Cagayan de Oro City still in a general community quarantine.

NMMC Chief Dr. Jose Chan said during the regular press conference on coronavirus disease (Covid-19) updates that the three Covid-positive patients still admitted in the hospital are all recovering and waiting for the results of their repeat test.

The persons under monitoring (PUMs) in the city, likewise, has dropped to 12, City Health Officer-in-Charge Dr. Lorraine Nery reported.

From February 5 to April 6, the City Health Office (CHO) has recorded a total of 1,337 PUMs, with 1,325 of them completed their 14-day quarantine.

The number of PUIs with mild symptoms in the city remained at three.

Meanwhile, the 72 barangay isolation units and two city isolation units in Cagayan de Oro are ready for occupancy, Nery said.

The CHO’s inspection team has also started their inspection in national high schools, colleges and universities whether they have the facilities needed so they can be converted into community quarantine units in case of a surge in the number of PUMs and PUIs in the future.
