OFWs told to suspend visit to the Philippines amid the rising Covid-19 cases


- Advertisment -

Filipinos who are planning to visit the Philippines are advised to suspend their trips back home due to the rise of Covid-19 lately. 

“My advice to our beloved OFWs: Kindly postpone your planned trip to our dear country, because there’s an increase in the new cases of Covid-19 and the escalation system of stayers in our hotel quarantine facilities.” Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) chief Hans Leo Cacdac wrote on Twitter. 

The Philippines logged 7,999 Covid-19 cases today, March 20, another record-high for the country. 

The chief, however, said that the agency is looking for hotels in Metro Manila’s nearby provinces to accommodate returning OFWs. 

“If it’s possible, postpone your scheduled trip to the country,” he added. 

The National Task Force against Covid-19 has recently capped the number of inbound passengers to 1,500 from March 22 to April 21. 

The Philippine Airline (PAL) has also announced flight cancellations due to the new travel restrictions imposed by the national government. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
