CASIGURAN, Sorsogon – After registering its first COVID-19 case of the town, the adjacent household of Bicol#660 later identified as Kris Duka Polinag of Barangay Boton was cordoned temporarily and under close monitoring to prevent the further spread of the virus. Her immediate families were swab tested and the results are awaited anytime.
According to the office of the mayor cordoning and closely monitoring the 17 households proximate to the residence of Polinag is necessary because the bigger issue is to contain possible transmission of the virus and the health of the population.
