Pasay checks cause of Covid surge 

account_balancePasay chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Pasay said it’s too early to say that the increase in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the city is related to the more infectious COVID-19 strain that originated from the United Kingdom (UK), according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

In a post on Wednesday night, the Public Information Office said the city has conducted contact tracing and has sent samples collected from mass RT-PCR testing for genome sequencing.

Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire had earlier said that they saw no link between the increase of COVID-19 cases in Pasay City and the 46-year-old female from the city who was detected with the UK variant.

The lack of contact tracers was raised by Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano in a meeting with the Department of Health (DOH) on Wednesday. She said that at a ratio of one contact tracer per 1,330 people, the number may not be enough to cover the city in an expeditious and orderly manner.

There are 97 households in  56 barangays that have been placed under localized community quarantine. 

On Feb. 23, Pasay City announced that the number of barangays affected by the continued spike of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases has risen to 55 from 33. Strict quarantine measures were put in place in barangays where three or more cases were recorded.

The latest barangays affected are: 28, 29, 32, 37, 40, 57,58, 66, 68, 71, 76, 81, 95, 98, 100, 107, 109, 118, 122, 132, 135, 136, 143, 155, 156, 159, 162, 175, 177, 178, 183, 190, 192, 201, 171, 7, 8, 14, 20, 26, 36, 51, 59, 65, 74, 90, 96, 99, 110, 111, 116, 131, 161, 188, 193, and 194.

As of 6:20 p.m. on Wednesday, Pasay City has logged a total of 441 active cases, 42 of which are new.
