The Department of Health (DOH) Davao Center for Health Development confirmed four new cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in the region bringing its total active cases to 397.

The regional office of the DOH added that all new cases came from Davao City.

However, ff the new cases, two are for further verification, while the other two are local cases. The DOH regional office added that the address of confirmed COVID-19 patients were based on the information the patients provided  in their Case Investigation Forms (CIF).  This means that if it is found out upon verification that they are not from the city, the total number of caseload may change.

The region also reported 17 recoveries, among these, 13 are from Davao City, and two each from Davao del Norte and Davao Oriental.

Meanwhile, the DOH launched “KUMUSTA BAGA?” in observance of National Lung Month. The Health Department encourages everyone to have their lungs checked and tested most especially since Covid-19 is a respiratory disease.  Rommel F. Lopez
