The earlier statement of the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) on the entry ban of ‘all passengers’ originating from 20 countries where the second Covid-19 strain was recently detected was taken down on its Facebook page.
In a press briefing today in the Philippines, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the Office of Executive Secretary is still drafting the guidelines on the travel ban.
“Uulitin ko po, antayin po natin ang guidelines ng Malacanang. It was highly recommended. And everyone agreed that it should not cover Filipino citizens. My office is the only one authorized to issue any information relating to Covid-19,” he added.
The Global Filipino Magazine took a screenshot of the post that was taken down by the MIAA.
