1-year-old baby in Cavite tests negative for coronavirus


A one-year-old baby from Cavite has tested negative for the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). 

The infant from Tanza, Cavite with recent travel history to Italy was previously monitored for the possible infection of the novel coronavirus.

Next to China, Italy is the second hardest-hit country of the pandemic virus.

Cavite governor Jonvic Remulla made the announcement on Saturday as part of the recent COVID-19 update on his Facebook page. 

Last Monday, March 9, Gov. Remulla announced that the first confirmed case in the province was a man from Imus — a returning seaman who passed through Narita Airport in Japan. 

The Department of Health on Saturday reported that there are eight total COVID deaths in the country.
