In a report of Inquirer, an unnamed individual who was classified as PUI or person under investigation was tested negative of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), according to the report of The Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) in Quezon. But unfortunately, it passed away because of septic shock.

The cause of death of the unnamed PUI as the health office revealed is “acute respiratory failure,” one of the most serious effects of COVID-19. The IPHO records show four possible casualties of COVID-19.

Last week, the test result of another probable COVID-19 casualty was negative of COVID-19. At the death of two who were both tested negative for the virus, only two remained without test results that could confirm the infection or clearance.

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the trial time by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine lasts seven days or more. Much slower than the usual cycle time of 24 to 48 hours.

The IPHO record still showed nine confirmed COVID-19 cases in the province five from this city, one in Tayabas City and in each of the towns of Sariaya, Sampaloc, and Candelaria. They have been reported in that they are in stable condition.

The IPHO also listed 231 validated PUIs as of Tuesday, a huge spike from Monday’s record of 207. With this, Lucena Mayor Roderick Alcala declared a “total lockdown” of the city.
