San Manuel Mayor Kenneth Perez called on the provincial government to probe how an 85-year old man coronavirus disease (COVID19) patient escaped from the Region 1 Medical Center (R1MC) in Dagupan City.
This after the man attempted to burn down a San Manuel quarantine facility he was in.
Perez said the man was just roaming around after he escaped the hospital.
He also ordered that the man be returned to R1MC but the hospital refused to admit him.
That was when he was temporarily placed inside the town’s quarantine facility.
The man was supposedly started the fire with a mosquito coil or katol after he wasn’t allowed to leave the quarantine facility.
