Gov Mamba: COVID-19 to continue spread if people don’t stay home

0

Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba once again called on residents to stay home amid the enhanced community quarantine due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The Cagayan politiko explained all of the COVID-19-positive patients in the province came from Metro Manila.

“Hindi local transmission ito, kundi galing sa Manila kung saan nagmula ang karamihan ng ating mga PUMs na halos 17,000 ang bilang. I know there may be more asymptomatic patients,” Mamba said.

“Ang kinatatakutan ko ay kung hindi tayo mag-quarantine nang husto, dadami at dadami ito,” he added.

Mamba said asymptomatic carriers may still transmit the virus to other people.

“Sa mga asymptomatic carriers, maaaring hawaan ang iba, kung kaya’t kailangan nating manatili sa ating mga tahanan. Hindi tayo pwedeng lumabas. Sa mga nakakulong sa mga bahay-bahay, pag-pasensiyahan muna para palipasin natin ito just like what they did in Wuhan, China,” he said.
