THE fight against COVID-19 in Pangasinan sprung back to life when 48 patients recovered from the disease and no new confirmed case was reported at 6:00 a.m. on October 9, according to the monitoring of the Provincial Health Office (PHO).
This brought to 781 the total number of recovered cases in Pangasinan with 407 still confined in hospital and isolation facilities while 42 persons have died so far.
This encouraging development came after consecutive days of surges of new confirmed active COVID-19 cases, the biggest of which was last October 3 when 135 of the employees of a manufacturing plant in Sta. Barbara town had been found positive for COVID-19, though most were asymptomatic.
The day before (October 8), there were 33 patients who recovered but there were 35 new cases that were registered from various parts of Pangasinan.
Of the 48 patients who recovered, at least 33 were from Dagupan. This brought down Dagupan’s current active COVID-19 cases to 109 from 142 the day before, October 8.
Of the 33 patients who recovered on October 15, at least 10 were also from Dagupan, still the current epicenter of the pandemic in Pangasinan. These include seven men (a 19-year old, a 70-year old, a 43-year old, a 48-year old, a 60-year old, 31-year old and a 34-year old). and three e women (a 37-year old, a 72-year old and a 44-year old).
Seven patients from Bolinao also recovered on the same day. Out of the seven, three were men: a 32-year, 18-year old and a 30-year old. The three women were a 28-year, 21-year old, a 52-year old. The youngest was a one-year baby girl.
Two other COVID-19 patients recovered from San Fabian on October 8. They were a 79-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man.
The others who recovered were from Sual (a 43-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man), Mangaldan (a 32-year-old man), Rosales (a 29-year-old woman), Urbiztondo (a 27-year-old man), Basista (a 22-year-old man), Malasiqui (a 44-year-old man), Calasiao (a 44-year-old woman) and Tayug (a three-year-old girl).
The 35 newly confirmed cases on October 8 were led by two newly confirmed active cases from Dagupan City (a 71-year-old woman with symptoms) and from Villasis (a 26-year-old man). (Leonardo Micua)
