Maria Catholic School offered their school facilities,said Treñas. “Situations like this make me verysad,” said Treñas. DepEd and DILG sought a memorandum ofagreement (MOA) with the city government. The city government thus decided toremove seven patients under investigation (PUIs) and a person under monitoring(PUM) for possible COVID-19 infection from Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolwhere they have been confined in isolation for several days now. PUIs are persons showing COVID-19symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing. PUMs are those notshowing the symptoms but have a history of travel to areas with confirmed COVID-19cases. ILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñasexpressed frustration at the “so many” paper requirements that the Departmentof Education (DepEd) and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG)asked from the city government for the use of Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolas isolation facility for suspected cases of coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19). Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN On the other hand, he thanked UI andSta. Maria Catholic School for their generosity and understanding. They would be transferred to a privateschool which offered a building as temporary isolation facility for suspectedCOVID-19 cases, according to Treñas. Pending the release of their COVID-19test results, isolating PUIs and PUMs is a must as a precautionary measure. “Masmaayo pa ang mga private schools kay nag-offer sila facilities ipausar lang anay to us. The MOA withthem will come later kon magtawhay na,”said Treñas. “So bay-an ta na lang ang DepEd. Magwana lang ta da sa central school kayginapabudlayan kita,” he said./PNlast_img
