6 of 14 Delta cases in Bataan recover, says gov
Bataan Governor Albert Garcia on Monday said six of 14 identified cases so far of the Delta variant of Covid-19 have recovered from the highly-transmissible disease.
“Technical classification ng recovery ng anim at ang re-integration nila sa community na lang ang hinihintay,” the governor was quoted as saying in a Punto Central Luzon report.
Garcia said five of the first six cases were from Mariveles while the last one was from Limay, who were working at the Freeport Area of Bataan when they tested positive for the Delta variant.
As of Monday, seven more cases of the new variant were identified in Bataan as well as an overseas Filipino worker from Balanga City, bringing the total to 14.
“Official total natin sa Delta variant sa lalawigan ay 14,” the governor said in the Punto report.
Garcia said Mariveles was a point of interest as it had more active Covid–19 cases. He also noted that the first cases of Delta variant were recorded there, prompting officials to recommend a 14-day granular lockdown in Barangays Biaan, Balon Anito and Camaya.
