    Something we have to be VERY VERY careful about. I have wondered since late march what would happen if Dumaguete in Negros Oriental suddenly developed "clusters," like manila and cebu. Could we control the outbreak, could we break the cycle of rapid contagion spreading by "local transmission."

    Well folks, IT'S HERE, and, so far, it does not look good. We've switched back to "take out," instead of "dine-in," for a week (but not stopping good tips); reduced our out-of-the-house trips; and gotten more careful about distancing. Our 100% use of face masks has never and will never slack. We have to "flatten" the curve here. THINK THINK THINK....

    SUMCFI asks patients: Be forthright
    Sun, Oct 25, 2020

    How did a COVID-19 patient from San Carlos City slip past the Negros Oriental provincial border, and show up unannounced in a private hospital in Dumaguete?

    The Silliman University Medical Center Foundation Inc. is urging the families of patients seeking admission to be transparent with their medical condition, especially in dealing with the hospital’s healthcare workers.

    The hospital issued a statement Monday following reports that identified it as having admitted a COVID-positive patient from San Carlos City.

    The patient, a 53-year-old female, appeared at SUMC from the San Carlos City Doctors’ Hospital early morning on Oct. 17 on board a Guihulngan City ambulance.

    The hospital said the patient arrived without following the proper coordination protocols of the Dumaguete City Tourism Office and the City Health Office.

    The MetroPost has learned from a reliable source who asked for anonymity because she had no authority to speak on the matter, that the patient was a resident of Guihulngan but whose family had relocated to San Carlos last year.

    The patient’s clinical impression suggested that she had community acquired pneumonia, diabetes melitus type II, and hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

    However, she was refused admission in San Carlos City.

    The MetroPost source said a sister of the patient had asked help from their friends in Guihulngan to use instead the LGU ambulance, claiming that the San Carlos ambulance charges P20,000 to transport patients to Dumaguete.

    The sister, however, did not disclose the fact that her patient was “IgG reactive”, which could mean that she may have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19.

    She also did not disclose that they have another sister in San Carlos City who has been diagnosed as COVID-positive.

    She reportedly told Guihulngan officials that they have a brother in Dumaguete who had made arrangements for their admission at SUMC, and that they already had a room reserved at the hospital.

    The source said the request to use the Guihulngan City ambulance was granted, mainly because the person making the request used to be a teacher in Guihulngan, and also out of pity for the teacher’s sister.

    The Guihulngan ambulance picked up the patient in San Carlos City.

    When the patient arrived in Dumaguete, the Guihulngan City Health Office called the Dumaguete City Health Office informing them that a COVID-suspect was now at SUMC.

    The patient, however, never got to her reserved room. Upon arrival at the SUMC, their COVID-19 Assessment and Review Board (CARB) evaluated the patient before admission, and determined that she was “COVID-19 likely” and was instead admitted in its isolation area.

    The patient was swabbed on Oct. 20, with the results coming out as COVID-positive on Oct. 23.

    The SUMCFI statement said the patient’s admission at the Hospital followed the health and safety protocols, and that their healthcare workers also followed appropriate infection control precautions, whilewearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

    The statement said the appeal to be forthright in declaring the patient’s condition is for proper examination and assessment. “It is also very crucial in lessening the risk of infection spread within Hospital premises.”

    Blood Type:
    I don't know.
    You want them to stop this outbreak but you are not interested in punishing super spreaders who do not follow proper protocols.

    Is this hypocrisy? Expecting changes of behavior without consequences?

    If there are no consequences how do you expect them to stop this outbreak?

    Guess you can't shorten the 14 days.

    .

    Even with a negative test result, you must monitor yourself for COVID-19 symptoms and self-quarantine for 14 days after you were exposed to a positive case. It is possible to have a negative test on Day 6 and become symptomatic a few days later.

    Why are they considering? The criteria are present so ACTION is needed, not more faffing about.

    The same as with masks - had they made them mandatory from the very early stages, thousands would now be alive who sadly are not. Instead some countries have taken months (of 'considering', I assume) to do the obvious.
