Baguio’s 47th patient reveals identity
by Jessa Mardy P. Samidan / PIO

Twenty nine-year-old Kimberly Zarene D. Fernandez is Baguio City’s 47th Covid-19 patient.

As a child development worker at the City Social Welfare and Development Office, she was subjected to the mandatory Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test on June 29 and her swab result turned out positive on July 2.

Immediately, personnel of the City Health Services Office (CHSO) fetched her from City Hall and brought her to the Sto. Niño Hospital, which serves as isolation facility for the city. She is asymptomatic.

Members of her family in Purok 9, Balenben Apugan Irisan were informed and advised to immediately conduct disinfection in their residence. 

Fernandez said she was shocked when she learned of her diagnosis because for one month now, she had only been going out of her house to report for work at City Hall and had been religiously following health protocols like wearing of face mask, hand washing and bathing, and disinfecting once at home.

Three days before her swab test, she went to purchase groceries at a store near Burnham Park. This was the only time that she went out of her usual house-to-work routine.

As a child development worker, she helps in fixing the Social Amelioration Card forms being scanned for easy reference of the audit and review teams. 

The working area is confined at an office in City Hall. For their lunch, the city hall canteen delivers the food to their workplace. 

She agreed to the call of Mayor Benjamin B. Magalong for her to reveal her identity to help hasten the contact tracing process and called on those she might have been in contact with to get tested at the CHSO.
