LUCENA—Only one person remains under observation for possible COVID-19 infection.

Dr. Anneavbit De Luna, medical coordinator of the Integrated Provincial Health Office in Quezon, said the staff is waiting for the results of the swab test done on a patient under investigation (PUI) on Friday.

De Luna said the patient's travel history included a country that has a confirmed case of COVID-19.

"PUI siya, it means may history ng travel at may symptoms so naka-quarantine po siya," De Luna said.

But the Quezon IPHO clarified that the province still remains COVID-19 free.

This after six PUIs earlier tested negative for the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, of the 48 persons being monitored, 25 have been cleared after completing home quarantine while 23 are under observation.
