The barangay captain and secretary of Bata in Bacolod City have tested positive for COVID-19.
Barangay Captain Angelito Abaring said on Thursday, July 29, that he and his secretary tested positive for the virus on Tuesday.
The Bata Barangay Hall has been closed for decontamination and those seeking death ad indigent certificates will be attended to by kagawads holding office at the barangay gym, Abaring said.
Abaring said he was not aware that he had COVID-19 and only found out on Tuesday after he was swabbed for a RT-PCR test prior to a trip to Iloilo City for an angiogram.
He was not feeling ill, Abaring said.
The secretary was also swabbed as he was going to accompany the barangay captain to Iloilo City.*
