Marso 20 nang masawi sa ospital ang SOCO team leader at questioned document examiner ng PNP Valenzuela.

“It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that I announce the untimely demise of another esteemed police officer who was in the frontline in this epic fight against a silent but deadly enemy,” pahayag ni PNP OIC Police Lieutenant General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar.

Sa ulat, nagpositibo ang frontline officer sa RT-PCR test noong Marso 12.

Simula noon ay nakwarantina na ang nasabing female police officer sa Arkong Bato at nalipat sa Dr. Jose Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center noong Marso 17 dahil sa hirap na paghinga.

Nilagyan na ng mechanical ventilator para oxygen support nang sumunod na araw ang buntis na police officer na nagtuloy sa seizure noong Marso 19. Kinalaunan ay pumanaw rin ang naturang pulis kasama ang kanyang hindi pa naisisilang na sanggol.

“Again, I would like to reiterate the instruction of our PNP Chief Police General Debold M. Sinas to all our personnel to strictly observe the minimum health safety protocols, most especially to the pregnant police officers who are working from home because they are more vulnerable to COVID-19 infections and other highly pathogenic respiratory infections. They must take extra precautions and should they feel COVID-19 symptoms or think they have been exposed to an infected person, they should immediately call their doctor and follow his or her advice,” paalala ng OIC.

Tiniyak naman ng PNP ang pinansyal na suporta sa naiwang pamilya ng police officer.
