"Nangyari po ito sa kabila ng aking ibayong pag-iingat, pagsusuot ng facemask, madalas na paghugas ng kamay, at social distancing," she said. "Kaya sana ay magsilbi itong paalala na ang COVID-19 ay tunay na isang kakaibang sakit na dapat pag-ingatan pa nang lubusan."

Belmonte also said the development did not surprise her since she has been visiting health centers, hospitals and areas in the city that were placed under special concern lockdown due to COVID-19.

City hall operations, meanwhile, will not be affected as Belmonte said she would continue monitoring despite her quarantine.
