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.
