Case 190 is a 73 year old resident of San Pablo. After feeling lethargic for several days, the patient consulted with a private doctor in San Marcelino where they were also found to be reactive after being subjected to the Rapid Antigen Test. Upon receiving the results, the Castillejos RHU decided to transport the patient to the President Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Hospital to recover. An RT-PCR test was conducted on the patient the following day where it returned a positive result. The vicinity of their home has been placed in lockdown and disinfected to prevent the spreading of the virus.

Case 191 is a 74 year old resident of Del Pilar. According to the information given by the hospital, the patient was brought to the San Marcelino District Hospital after bouts of coughing, fever, and experiencing shortness of breath. For these symptoms, a Rapid Antigen Test was conducted which returned a “reactive” result. The patient was transported to the President Ramon Magsaysay where an RT PCR test returned a positive result. As of this writing, the patient is still recovering in PRMMH.

Case 192 is a 42 year old who just recently moved in with their family in barangay San Pablo. Three days after moving in to the place they were renting, the patient experienced recurring fevers, as well as shortness of breath since two weeks ago. A Rapid Antigen Test was conducted on the patient after rushing to the San Marcelino District Hospital on May 2 but the test returned a “non-reactive” result. However, as the patient was still exhibiting symptoms of the virus, they were still transported to the President Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Hospital for observation.
