The entire Sitio Dungtal in Brgy. 23, Laoag City was placed under lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak in this outskirt of the city, a Nov. 9 report said.
Brgy. Chairman Primo Jay Ramos said the village council decided to lock down the whole Dungtal to prevent the spread of the virus after five families in one compound there were allegedly infected by an ambulant vendor tagged as IN-C134 patient who was tested positive of the COVID.
He said a barangay health worker was deployed in the said Sitio to help monitor and attend to the needs of the infected families now undergoing quarantine. (tri-media report)
