Three San Pedro Residents Come Out as COVID-19 Positive

Three persons from San Pedro came forward and released on social media their COVID-19 positive status. They did so to inform persons who came in contact with them to be aware of the situation and possible infection.  Popular San Pedro disc jockey, Abner Diaz says he announced his status so that people learn the importance of wearing face masks and keeping the mandatory six feet social distance. The twenty-five-year-old deejay says he is feeling well, but has no idea when, where, or from whom he got infected.

“Well I am doing good. I had it a little days before I knew. I went for my test on Monday so my test did not come in until today so I had already had it but it was just the first days that I really felt bad. Right now I am feeling way more better. I have been drinking a lot of tea, remedy and so on.”

“What would you want to tell people who are not social distancing or wearing mask?”

Abner Diaz

“Well I used to be one of those persons. I would just tell them just please wear your mask and stay safe because I used to be one of those persons that didn’t used to wear mask and now I see why.”
