Twenty one Filipinos in the UAE have died to the coronavirus disease, the Philippine Embassy in the UAE confirmed.

“I regret to inform that about 17 sa Dubai at apat po sa Abu Dhabi po iyon po ang aming information at the moment,” she said.

She also appealed to the Filipino expats in the host country to follow the strict protocols by the national government to contain the spread of the virus.

“Ako po at nag-aapela na patuloy na mag ingat, siguro dapat eh lalo pa nating pagbutihin ang ating pag-obserba ng mga sinasabi sa ating guidelines dito para tayo ay hindi magkasakit. At makakaasa kayo na lagi naman tayong tutulong kung anuman ang pangangailangan,” she added.
