Disclosure of medical history is important, the city mayor says.
In line with various reports of patients not disclosing their travel records and medical history, Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco recently stirred a local campaign urging her constituents to tell the truth. She emphasized that doctors and health workers need accurate and correct information not only to determine the best care treatment for patients but also to protect themselves.
“Join the campaign to #sharetruthfully and #protectyourmedicalteam by being honest with your COVID history. Show your support to our doctors, nurses, and all health workers in the thick of the battle by using the special frame for your profile photo”, she wrote.
She also said that the effort is done in solidarity with the city’s medical and health teams.
