THE former mayor of Morong, Bataan said people must not be complacent and must follow the guidelines on how to limit the spread of COVID-19. In an online interview, Jorge Estanislao, husband of incumbent Mayor Cynthia L. Estanislao, said corona virus is a new or novel virus. “The world was not expecting it to happen,” he said.
“It’s nice that we have the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) swab testing but we should be capable of doing it the right way and do it well and interpret it at once with a trained pathologist,” said the former town executive. He added: “Swab testing is very challenging, there are false positives, and false-negative results because of improper collection, mode of transporting the specimen, etc.” “Best is to prevent having the Covid-19 by wearing a face mask, observing social distancing, and staying at home when you are not supposed to go out,” pointed out Estanislao who is also a medical practitioner.
