The Baguio city government called on residents not to take coronavirus disease (COVID19) symptoms for granted.
Mayor Benjamin Magalong and City Health Officer Rowena Galpo recently released a statement debunking erroneous claims about COVID19.
Some people have been claiming that simple coughs and colds were being declared as COVID19 in test results.
But they said that coughs and colds are common symptoms of COVID19.
They also reminded residents that other people may be susceptible to the virus.
“They may be healthy and able to withstand the virus but some of their family members, relatives or workmates who are elderly or have weak immune system or comorbidities may not,” they said.
