CCHD’S FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

  • Q: “Why the delay in reporting of deaths?”
    • A: Submission of death certificates from hospitals to CCHD may not always be on time as their death certificates are sometimes put on hold because of delay in the payment of bills.
  • Q: “Why wait for death certificates?”
    • A: As per protocol, COVID-related deaths are placed on the official list as soon as a death certificate is duly issued. It will be prudent on the part of government to base its reporting on official documents.
  • Q: “Why is the data being reported by your department different from the report by DOH?”
    • A: The report from DOH is based on the linelist (results) given by laboratories. The CCHD sanitizes that list. After thorough verification of our contact tracing team, CCHD culls out those that are not from the city and also extract those that are double entries. The data that CCHD presents are actual cases traced and identified by the city’s frontliners.

Sugboanons, let’s do our part. Don’t leave your homes unless necessary, practice good hygiene, get tested when advised by the local authorities, and follow the protocols.
