Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Dia  said yesterday,  the officer-in-charge of the Provincial Budget Office of Negros Occidental had tested positive for COVID-19.

Diaz said the department head started having a fever last week and was advised to undergo RT-PCR test last Friday.

The provincial official’s results were released over the weekend.

Diaz said contact tracing was immediately conducted and the official’s household and employees of the budget office were immediately swabbed.

The follow-up results were immediately released, and it was confirmed that the official’s brother-in-law also tested positive, while employees of the budget office were all negative.

Since the official also attended the budget hearings last week, Diaz said the other department heads were also swabbed and most of them were negative for the virus while the other results are still pending.

Diaz said the official may have been infected during an event at the official’s residence two weeks ago. (Dolly Yasa via The Daily Guardian (TDG), photo courtesy by TDG)
