A Sto. Tomas, Davao del Norte local died of diarrhea while 397 other residents were being treated for the illness.

According to a Monday “24 Oras” report, the diarrhea outbreak was allegedly caused by contaminated water.

Meanwhile, 397 residents were swab tested because diarrhea is one of the symptoms of COVID-19. — Consuelo Marquez/DVM, GMA News
