Two more overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have skipped the quarantine protocols after presenting fake quarantine certificates.
The unnamed OFWs are now facing charges for violating the quarantine protocols for returning Filipinos.
According to Dr. Robert Salvador, the Bureau of Quarantine Deputy Director, they have already filed charges against the two OFWs for breaking the quarantine protocols, including Gwyneth Chua, who infected about 15 people after skipping isolation during the holidays.
“Nagbreak ng protocol at nandaya ng quarantine certificate,” he said.
There is also a slight decrease in the number of OFWs getting positive for Covid-19–from a high of 400 Covid positive in December to 250 Covid positive last January 22.
“Mula po noong 2nd week of December, tumaas talaga po ang bilang ng mga nagpa-positive na mga kababayan natin na bumalik sa Pilipinas. Umakyat po ito ng more than 400 noong December, ayun po nagstart noong Saturday first time kami nakakuha ng 250 na nagpositive. Sana tuloy tuloy na bumaba ang trend natin starting noong Saturday bumaba ang bilang natin,” Dr. Salvador further added.
