The mayor was discharged from Bacolod Adventist Medical Center over the weekend after he was admitted and tested positive of the virus.

His medical record shows that he suffered mild COVID-19. His son added that based on his doctor’s remarks the mayor is “clinically stable with no recurrence. No further quarantine needed but recommended use of face mask, face shield, social distancing (minimum public health standards)”.

Derek said his father is functional and is just isolated in a quarantine facility in Victorias to comply the remaining few days.
