Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba reminded the public that the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is highly communicable.
The Cagayan politiko said that while many COVID-19-positive patients are on the road to recovery, it is still easy to transmit the virus to other people.
“Hindi pwedeng gumala ang mga mayroon nito sapagkat tiyak na may ibang mahahawa,” Mamba said.
“Kapag napuno ang mga ospital natin, hindi natin kakayanin,” he added.
Mamba admitted that the country’s health system won’t be able to handle a surge of COVID-19 patients.
“Huwag na nating antayin na dumami at lumala pa ito. Limited lamang ang magagawa ng ating health system,” he said.
