Cordillera - The four initially declared persons under investigation (PUI) in Cordillera last week has been tested negative of the Corona infection, local health officials reported on Monday. 
During a press briefing, health officials from the Diseases Prevention and Control Cluster of the Department of Health Cordillera said the 4 individuals have been tested negative after the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine showed tests done on respiratory samples from them turned out negative. 

Earlier, DOH-CAR reported that the four PUIs, three of them are women and a two years old voluntarily submitted themselves for infections after arriving from Hong Kong.

Head of the Disease Prevention and Control Cluster Dr. Jinnefer Joyce Pira calls on the public not to panic and stay healthy. 

She advises everyone to keep their immune system strong, keep their body warm and eat healthy foods. 

She encourages the public to practice proper hygiene and hand washing, observe proper etiquette when coughing or sneezing by covering their mouth.

Pira also reiterated the health department's public advisory for the judicious use of masks to prevent the shortage of surgical and N95 masks.
She said that people of good health do not need to use face masks instead use only by those persons/care health provider who are caring for the sick person with respiratory infection/symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and fever. 

N95 masks must be reserved for healthcare and other frontline workers, Pira added.
