The patient who tested positive for the Omicron variant of the coronavirus diseases 2019 (Covid-19) has not yet arrived in the city despite being tagged living here.

This was based on the follow-up investigation and tracing by the Cagayan de Orro City Health Office (CHO), Dr. Teodoro Yu Jr., medical officer, said during a press briefing Saturday.

“The mobile phone number she gave (in the registration) was her aunt’s because she has no local sim card, and the address she gave was her aunt’s who resides in the city,” Yu said in a report in government news agency PNA.

According to data from the Department of Health (DOH), the patient is a 20-year-old college student who arrived in the Philippines on Dec. 21, 2021. On December 26, she tested positive for Covid-19 while in isolation in Manila.
