Three patients admitted at Navotas City Hospital (NCH) have recovered from coronavirus disease 2019 and returned home on April 17.

Emiliano Siochi, 81, from Brgy. San Jose; Potenciana Descaya, 60, from NBBS Kaunlaran; and Elorde Laurente, 58, from NBBS Dagat-dagatan have tested negative from the dreaded disease after more than two weeks of confinement at NCH.

“These are our first recoveries at Navotas City Hospital and we are happy to send the patients home. We hope they and their families remain healthy and safe,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

“We congratulate and thank all of our health workers and city frontliners. I am sure you are as happy as the patients. Your hardwork and sacrifices have borne fruit. We know your work is physically, emotionally and mentally taxing. We assure you that you have the full support of our city government. We will fight COVID-19 together,” he added.

Navotas now has four recoveries. The first recovered patient was discharged from Fe Del Mundo Medical Center and tested negative on April 3 and 9.

Tiangco also reminded the public that City Ordinance No. 2020-16 protects patients who suffered from COVID-19 from any form of discrimination.

“COVID patients have already suffered enough. Discrimination against them is punishable by law. I will make sure that anyone who violates this ordinance shall be brought to justice,” he warned.

Violators may be meted with a P1,000 fine or 1-30 days of imprisonment for first offense, P3,000 fine or 1-30 days of imprisonment for second offense, and P5,000 fine or 1-30 days of imprisonment for third offense.

Meanwhile, NCH Director and City Health Officer Dr. Christia Padolina advised Navoteños to always observe proper hygiene, follow social distancing, and stay home to stop the spread of the deadly virus.

“Our frontliners are risking their lives to keep us safe from COVID-19. Let us help them fight this disease by staying home,” she said.
