Governor Rhodora Cadiao urged people in Antique province to isolate if they have symptoms of Covid-19 to prevent possibly spreading the virus to others.

Cadiao made the appeal following the sudden rise of Covid-19 cases in Antique, with 212 active cases on Wednesday.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases earlier placed the province under the more stringent Alert Level 3 from January 14 until January 31. (

“Since the disease is fast spreading and affects the whole household, immediate isolation of individuals with symptoms is necessary so as not to affect other members, and seek medical advice if needed,” the governor said in a statement.

Cadiao also reminded her constituents to avoid gatherings that involved people that are not immediate family members.
