The longest staying COVID-19 positive patient at the EB Magalona Healing Center finally went home yesterday with gifts from the provincial government.
The 28-year-old male from La Castellana town, who was finally certified Covid-19 negative, had been staying at the healing center for one month and nine days, Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz said yesterday.
He tested positive for COVID-19 five times and had a very slow recuperation, Diaz said.
However his wife, who is pregnant, was not infected with the virus, he added.
There have been 103 COVID-19 patients who have recovered at the EB Magalona Healing Center so far, he said.*
