The Bataan provincial government has confirmed that Balanga City administrator Rudy de Mesa, who died of flu-like symptoms on Friday, tested positive for Covid-19, according to Gov. Albert Garcia.

The governor made the announcement after receiving the test result from the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) released on Sunday.

“Sa gitna ng ating pagluluksa sa pagpanaw ni City Administrator Rudy de Mesa noong ika-27 ng Marso, lumabas na po ang nakalulungkot na resulta ng kanyang Covid-19 test at ito po ay positibo,” Garcia said.

“Siya ay nagpa admit sa ospital noong ika-23 ng Marso dahil sa lagnat, ubo at hirap sa paghinga. Dagdag pa rito, siya ay may comorbidity kung kaya’t siya ay itinuring na severe PUI (patient under monitoring),” he added.

Garcia said one of De Mesa’s fellow employees who was hospitalized Thursday was also found positive for Covid–19.

“Dahil dito, pinakikiusapan po ang lahat ng mga nakasalamuha ni Mr. De Mesa na sumailalim na sa strict self-quarantine at kung may maramdamang hindi maganda ay agad na komunsulta sa pinakamalapit na klinika o ospital,” he said.

“Muli, nais ko iparating ang aking taus-pusong pakikiramay sa pamilya at mga mahal sa buhay ni Kuya Rudy,” Garcia said.
