Ria Fariñas urges passengers of bus with possible COVID-19 to cooperate with contact tracing


Ilocos Norte First District Representative Ria Fariñas is urging all passengers of the Maria De Leon Bus #29 trip where a suspected COVID-19 case was present to cooperate with the contact tracing efforts.

The politiko made the appeal on Tuesday, March 24, after Ilocos Sur Governor Ryan Singson said that one of the passengers of the 8:45 pm Manila-Laoag trip of Bus #29 is likely to test positive for COVID-19.

“In light of Ilocos Sur Governor Ryan Singson’s announcement of a highly probable case of COVID-19 in Ilocos Sur, we implore the cooperation of the passengers of Maria de Leon Bus #29 trip on March 14, 8:45pm from Manila – Laoag, Fariñas said.

“If you haven’t been contacted by health officials and authorities by now, please inform ASAP your barangay captain or Barangay Health Emergency Response Team (BHERT), and/or the City/Municipal Health Office that you were a passenger of the said trip and to strictly follow their instructions of protocols for quarantine,” she added.
