95 Bulacan juvenile center residents recover from Covid-19
Some 95 coronavirus-stricken residents and staffers of the Bahay Tanglaw Pag-asa juvenile center in Malolos City have recovered after two weeks of isolation.
According to a Philippine News Agency report, Dr. Hjordis Marushka Celis, provincial health officer II and chief of Bulacan Medical Center (BMC), had given the clean bill of health to 80 wards of the center, nine social workers and six security guards.
The juvenile reformation and correctional facility is under the supervision of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) and located in Barangay Guinhawa.
On March 26, the center was locked down after several residents and staffers tested positive for Covid-19.
Six jail guards tested negative for Covid-19 after undergoing quarantine, officials said.
The residents who contracted Covid-19 reported only mild symptoms such as fever, while the rest did not show any symptoms, Celis said.
