Cadiz mayor contracts coronavirus
Despite being fully vaccinated, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr. tested positive for Covid-19.
“Despite all precautions and strict observance of all safety and health protocols at the office and during official business, I was infected by the virus,” said Escalante.
“It goes without saying that the risk comes with the job description and I am oftentimes required to have face-to-face meetings with people in the interest of public service and good governance,” he added. (https://bit.ly/3mC8CNy)
The mayor said he is making the public announcement not to cause or stir any alarm, but to give assurance that he has with him the Cadiznon spirit.
“I will prevail over this disease and I am presently recovering well by God’s mercy and grace,” said Escalante.
