LINGAYEN – Seven more Pangasinenses were confirmed to have contracted the corona virus as of June 7.

Two of them are from Agno town – a 53 year old jail officer and a 54-year old ambulance driver. Both are male and both are from Poblacion East of the town.

The third positive case, also a male, is a 37 year old bodyguard from Tagudin village in Mabini.

The three cases are asymptomatic but underwent Targeted Mass Testing (RT-PCR) last June 3 conducted by the Pangasinan Provincial Health Office.

In Sual, four fresh cases were reported as a result of the local government unit’s “Test, Trace and Treat,” a statement of the LGU said.

The statement did not give information about the patients, only saying that they are medical frontliners and returning residents who were subjected to PCR test being undertaken by the LGU and the Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center.

The statement said the former patient was retested and confirmed to be positive anew of the virus.

Mayor Dong Calugay said the targeted mass testing will continue to identify those who are affected and prevent infection of others.

He said remedial measures are in place, such as the isolation of the affected residents, food assistance, appropriate medical attention and disinfection of their houses.
