ANOTHER frontliner has been added to the list of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases in Angeles City, said Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr.
No other details about the patient's identity were provided aside from his residence in Barangay Santo Domingo.
"Nadagdagan na naman pong isa ang Covid positive natin sa Angeles, nakakalungkot man pong ibalita sa inyo. Siya po ay taga-barangay Santo Cristo at isa pong frontliner din," Lazatin said.
The patient was admitted at medical facility in the city on Tuesday, June 2, the mayor added.
The patient's relatives were placed under quarantine at the City College of Angeles (CCA).
As of Tuesday, the City Government has recorded 26 Covid-19 cases with 21 recoveries, two deaths and three currently admitted in hospitals.
Lazatin said 52 individuals or persons under monitoring are now under quarantine at the CCA.
The mayor reminded his constituents to observe safety protocols now that the people started working and several commercial establishments had opened.
Public utility vehicles are set to start operation this week with minimum capacity, according to Lazatin.
"Pinapayuhan po natin ang ating mga kababayan na mag-ingat po tayo at palagi po nating i-observe ang social distancing at iba pang safety protocols na ipinapatupad ng ating pamahalaan," the mayor added.
