DOH Region 2 prepares for Coronavirus

TUGUEGARAO CITY – Recently, the infamous Coronavirus that has a significant mortality rate from its origin in Wuhan, China and other parts of the world is currently alarming the world and has taken social media by storm.
In Cagayan Valley, due to the alarming threat this virus presents, the Department of Health (DOH) and Center for Health Development (CHD) is preparing measures against the said virus.

Dr. Rio Magpantay, regional director of DOH-CHD on an interview said that his office is coordinating with concerned agencies and hospitals.

Our team is always prepared in case there are suspected cases in local airports and seaports in the region. We know that we have Chinese people living in Sta. Ana and we believe they also enter the country via chartered planes from China. A notable place of origin from China of these private planes is Macau.

We should be in high alert regardless of where the Chinese visitors came from.
