Candaba vice-mayor contracts Covid-19


CANDABA - Vice Mayor Michael Sagum of this municipali­ty has tested positive for coronaviru­s disease (Covid-19).

In his Facebook post, Sagum confirmed on Saturday, September 18, that he contracted the disease by posting the result of his RT-PCR test.

He, however, clarified that he was in quarantine since September 6 after his wife tested positive for the virus.

A few days after, Sagum said Covid-19 symptoms such as cough, colds, and loss of sense of taste started manifestin­g in his body, prompting him to get tested. The vice mayor said he will remain in quarantine until he is clinically declared as recovered to prevent exposing other people from the virus. He also urged the public to continue observing health protocols to avoid, as much as possible, getting infected by the disease.
