COVID-19 cases in House of Representatives increase to 31

The House of Representatives now has 31 confirmed cases of COVID-19, up three cases from Saturday’s count of 28, Secretary-General Jose Luis Montales said on Sunday. Among the three new cases confirned by the House official was Deputy Speaker, Basilan lone district Rep. Mujiv Hataman. Hataman had actually revealed his condition over in his social media Saturday but it was only acknowledged Sunday afternoon by the House. Montales, in an advisory to reporters, disclosed about the other two cases:  “The first is from Human Resources Management Service. He reported for work on July 22 and 23. He got tested on July 31 after experiencing cough and colds, fever, and loss of smell and taste.” The secretary-general said the remaining positive case was from the Engineering Department. “He tested positive when he underwent rapid antibody test as part of SoNA (State of the Nation Address) screening protocol. His RT-PCR (Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction) test confirmed that he is positive for COVID-19.” Also known as a swab test, the RT-PCR test is said to be far more accurate than a rapid test. Montales said contact tracing on the two House employees is ongoing. It was also during this previous week that another Deputy Speaker, Surigao del Sur 2nd district Rep. Johnny Pimentel, tested positive for COVID-19. He also learned of his infection during the SoNA swab testing on July 26 at Batasang Pambansa Complex. Pimentel, spokesman of ruling party Partido Demokratiko Pilipino–Lakas ng Bayan, was initially included in the very short list of physical attendees for President Duterte’s SoNA last Monday. Like Hataman, Pimentel is currently on home quarantine. Three House employees have so far died from the disease......»»
