Leyte confirms 2 new Covid-19 cases; both of them are OFWs


The Department of Health in the Philippines confirmed three new Covid-19 cases in Leyte province as overseas Filipino workers return home after being quarantined in Manila.

In a PNA report, one of the Covid-19 cases is a female OFW, 35, in Abuyog who arrived on May 27 via Air Asia flight.

Meanwhile, the local government in Baybay City recorded its second case who is also a female migrant worker, 33. She arrived on May 25 via Philippine Airlines aircraft.

The latter is on the same flight with other two OFWs who turned positive for Covid-19 from Hilongos and Tanuan towns.

“We have to find out why they turned positive even if they have already tested negative of the virus before their flight back home,” DH Regional Director Minerva Molon said in a PNA report.

According to the report, these OFWs have arrived early in early May when they returned from their host countries and health workers in Metro Manila took the swab test of them.
