TACLOBAN CITY, June 25 (PIA) -- Tacloban City Mayor Alfred Romualdez informed Taclobanons that there is no need to panic amid the increasing number of COVID-19 in the city, but cooperate instead and strictly observe the health protocols prescribed by the Department of Health, to avoid the spread of the disease.

“There is no need to panic as we have done the necessary protocols so as to manage the cases. The city has provided a hotel as isolation facility for the medical workers of the Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center or EVRMC. This is our assistance to the said health institution, considering that most of the health workers who tested positive of the virus are residents of the city,” Mayor Romualdez said in a press briefing.

Romualdez added that the families of the affected health workers were already tested and almost 99 percent of them got negative results.

He said the city has also assigned a quarantine facility for the frontliners of the Tacloban City Health Office, adding that no cases of the city’s health workers have been noted.

Romualdez said they also contracted another hotel and have utilized two evacuation centers as quarantine facilities for the returning Locally Stranded Individuals (LSIs) who have no capacity for home quarantine.
