The doctor went to Iloilo to see his girlfriend. According to Vice Mayor Familiaran, the doctor is already under a self-quarantine now after hearing about the other doctor testing positive for coronavirus.

Familiaran stressed that as a medical practitioner, the doctor who tested positive for COVID-19 should have isolated right away after the taking of the swab samples for testing.
