New Anti-COVID Czar Tested Positive For Coronavirus
ANTI-COVID CZAR POSITIVE – In an ironic twist of fate the newly appointed “isolation czar” tested positive for COVID-19.
In the governments latest attempt at curving the coronavirus spread, 3 people were appointed as “ANTI-COVID Czars”. These people were:
- Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong
- Tracing Czar
- Health Undersecretary Leopoldo Vega
- Treatment Czar
- Public Works Secretary Mark Villar
- Isolation Czar
Earlier, he announced on his Facebook page that he had tested positive for the new coronavirus, COVID-19. On his page, he said:
I regret to announce that today, July 15, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19.
These appointments were made as the Philippines continued to report thousands of COVID-19 cases per day. The three new Czar’s would join Carlito Galvez Jr. the country’s national COVID-19 task force chief implementer.
To effectively manage COVID-19, more of the responsibility shifts to the LGU, to the private company, and to the individual citizens… Ang aming hinihingi sa ating mga mamamayan ay magkaroon po tayo ng displinaCarlito Galvez Jr.
Currently, the country has over 57,500 cases of the new coronavirus with over 1,600 deaths. Meanwhile, the number of reported recoveries has reached 20,000.
However, some express concern as the Department of Health imposed a new recording system that stated asymptomatic patients could be released after 10 days even without results.
