BREAKING: 1-year-old Filipino baby in UAE wins battles against Covid-19


Philippine Ambassador to the UAE H.E. Hjayceelyn M. Quintana expressed happiness that 1-year-and-6-months old baby Zaine has tested negative for COVID-19, three (3) weeks after both he and his mother were informed they were COVID-positive and started treatment. This makes Zaine the youngest Filipino COVID-19 survivor in the UAE, based on information received by the Embassy.

Zaine’s mother experienced very mild symptoms during isolation while Zaine did not exhibit any symptoms at all but tested positive seven (7) times by SEHA. Amb. Quintana said “I have known Zaine since he was born 3 months pre-mature in October 2018 and have been personally praying for him since then. I thank God for giving Zaine another miracle,” said Amb. Quintana.

“All Filipinos in the UAE, including us at the Embassy, feel and suffer the effects of COVID-19. We rejoice in the recovery of Zaine and join family members of other Filipino COVID patients in UAE in celebrating the recuperation of their affected loved ones. At the same time, we join the families in mourning the loss of those Filipinos in UAE who succumbed to the virus, “ said Amb. Quintana.

Amb. Quintana continued, “while mobility restrictions are starting to ease, now is the time for continued caution and not for complacency. I therefore urge all Filipinos in the UAE to remain vigilant in exercising COVID-19 precautions such as hand-washing, wearing of facial masks, social distancing, and avoiding going outside one’s home unnecessarily.”

Amb. Quintana called on all Filipinos in the UAE to stay safe at all times.
