The province of Camiguin has the lowest coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases in the Northern Mindanao region, and received zero complaints in the management of patient care facilities.

Rhona Abadilla, provincial director of the Department of the Interior of Local Government (DILG), said on Wednesday there were no negative feedbacks given by returning residents who underwent the standard quarantine protocols.

Abadilla said the province has 64 isolation units, with 603-bed capacity in the 56 barangays in the province’s five towns.

During the Network Briefing News with Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, Camiguin Gov. Jurdin Jesus Romualdo said each town and barangay in the province has established their own Covid-19 protocols for locally stranded individuals (LSIs) and returning overseas Filipinos (ROFs).

“There is an agreement with the barangay or the LGU and the families of locally-stranded individuals in providing the food for those who were sent to isolation units. Also, most of the overseas Filipino workers or returning overseas Filipinos are staying in hotels and they are the ones who shoulder the payments,” he said.

As of Tuesday, Camiguin recorded the lowest number of Covid-19 cases in Region 10, with 20 cases since March, and only one active case so far.

Meanwhile, the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Division of Camiguin recorded a high number of enrollees with 23,944 or around 93 percent of target enrollees in public elementary schools.

Schools Division Superintendent Edgardo Abanil said they coordinated with the local government units to implement a system for receiving and returning of learning modules.

“The towns here provided volunteers who can also help in the distribution of the modules,” she said.

Curriculum Implementation Division Chief Emelia Aclan also said parents and learners could also communicate with their teachers through call or text if they encounter difficulties with understanding the modules.

“To ensure that the students have understood the modules, the teachers will conduct assessments. They will be oriented next week on how they will assess the knowledge gained by the children,” she said.

Aside from the modules, DepEd-Camiguin also sought help from Island Cable TV Corp. in airing television-based lessons. (PNA)
