Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong called on residents to consult early with doctors if they are experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus disease (COVID19).
The Baguio politiko made the remark after a spike in COVID19 cases in the Summer Capital in the past few weeks.
Magalong said those who died due to COVID19 were already in severe condition when they were brought to hospitals.
He also said the city government is planning to make medical consultations more accessible.
“Let’s not wait for symptoms to get worse before bringing them to the hospital especially if they have other illnesses and are considered high risk because by that time, it might be too late,” he said.
