The officer-in-charge of the Cagayan de Oro (CdO) City health office has quit her post over criticisms of her handling the coronavirus transmission in the city.

Dr. Lorraine Nery said she stepped down and returned as the city’s medical order after being “misjudged and misinterpreted.”

“There are circumstances that led me to step down, I have been misinterpreted, misjudged,” she said without elaborating.

Mayor Oscar Moreno accepted Nery’s resignation and appointed Dr. William Bernardino to take her place.

Moreno instructed Bernardo to intensify the vaccination roll-out and the immediate transfer of patients from home quarantine to the city’s isolation units.

The resignation came amid the sharp rise in Covid-19 transmission with daily positive cases exceeding 100.

The death tally has reached the 400-mark since the pandemic broke out last year.

The city is under modified enhanced community quarantine or ME
