Compliance of the Returning Baguio Residents and Workers Process has been proven to be effective so far as it helped the city identify one of its latest COVID-19 cases.
COVID-19 Patient from City Camp Central
Ailene Doria, a twenty-eight-year-old female, residing at City Camp Central, is one of Baguio City’s two new COVID-19 cases and she tested positive after undergoing triage upon arrival.
Doria is a returning worker who came from San Fernando, La Union where she waited for three days starting May 26, 2020, for the confirmation of her travel date to Baguio City.
However, prior to her stay in La Union, she was in her hometown, Binmaley, Pangasinan for two months since her work was suspended due to the implementation of the Luzonwide Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).
Undergoing the RBR Process upon Entry to Baguio
The COVID-19 patient said that upon arrival in Baguio City, she complied with the RBR Process.
Furthermore, as other returning workers should do, she underwent triage at the St. Vincent Gym where her diagnostic x-ray showed that she has suspicious pneumonia. Thus, doctors at the triage conducted a swab test for Doria.
From the triage area, Doria said that she went straight home to her boarding and did as she was told. After her swab test, she was advised to self-quarantine while waiting for her swab results.
Doria Heeds Mayor Magalong’s Call
In order to make her family, relatives, and others whom she came in contact with in the past days aware of the situation, she immediately agreed to respond to Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s call by identifying herself.
Doria wanted these people who she came in contact with to be aware, to quarantine and seek medical help if needed to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
