Despite earlier reports saying that the Filipina’s health was in stable condition, a top official of the Philippine embassy said that the 43-year-old patient’s condition is getting worse.
“The condition of our kabayan is getting worse. We can assure, however, the patient is being given maximum health care and support,” Marford Angeles, Consul-General and Deputy Head of Mission at the Philippine Embassy, told Gulf News.
The identity of the Filipina patient hasn’t revealed yet.
On February 16, UAE has recorded its 9th coronavirus case and three patients have already been discharged.
Out of the remaining six cases, one is Indian, four are Chinese nationals and one Filipino.
