Two Sinovac vaccinated nurses in CLMMRH tested positive for the virus
Two medical workers of Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital (CLMMRH) had positive swab test results for COVID-19 even after being vaccinated with Sinovac doses. According to Dr. Chris Sorongon, City Emergency Operation Centers deputy for medical data and analysis, the two nurses must have obtained the virus outside of the hospital since CLMMRH’s infection control is good. Both nurses did not show symptoms of the virus and tested positive during the hospital’s medical surveillance swab testing every two weeks .
