A total of 142 out of 343 construction workers in Barangay 30 have now tested positive for Covid-19 since February 10. This following today’s daily briefing that 53 out of the 61 new cases were workers at the same construction site. Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno said the worksite has already been cordoned and all construction workers were isolated and accounted for.
Out of the 142 who tested positive, 92 are from Cagayan de Oro City and 50 are from outside the city. Most if not all of them are young and either asymptomatic or with mild symptoms. They’re now quarantined at the city’s Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility while 117 workers whose test results have yet to come out were confined at the City’s Isolation Units. Meanwhile, the 82 workers who tested negative were confined at their bunkhouses which were disinfected at their construction site.
