The Quezon provincial government is now intensifying its security activity after the implementation of a lockdown by Governor Suarez effective April 9, 2020.

In an interview with Quezon Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Grace Santiago said they now have a total of 20 patients suffering from coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

From the cities of Calauag, Candelaria, Unisan and Infanta four of these were declared dead.

Lucena Mayor Roderick Alcala announced on Monday that at least three of the six confirmed cases were "doctors" in town.


“We’re almost finished with the contact tracing in the five cases. But with the latest case, we’re now back to zero,” Alcala said in a phone patch interview.

The information office at Tayabas City also had disclosed that one of their reported cases was a “health worker in a private health facility in Lucena City.”

Authorities are still investigating since some of the victims in Metro Manila and overseas do not have travel records.

Meanwhile, Santiago acknowledged that the condition was troubling, as most of his health workers became infected and responded to the disease.

Besides, they have provided isolation areas to prevent further infection in these successful patients.
