Fifty-two doctors, nurses and other health workers of the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) who were traced to have close contact with the 21-year old accident victim from Brgy. Lumbia have all tested negative of Covid-19. This was disclosed by City Health Office epidemiologist Dr. Joselito Retuya Saturday, May 9.
Accordingly, these were the results of their swab test which came from the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City. The said health workers were quarantined and swabbed after the patient tested positive of Covid-19, just a few days before he expired last May 6.
More than 180 individuals were traced to have close contact with the said patient.
