Philippines brings home 30 Filipinos that came from virus-hit Wuhan


A total of 30 Filipinos who sought to return to the Philippines have arrived at the Clark International Airport in Pampanga Sunday morning from Wuhan, China – ground zero of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Acute Respiratory Disease (2019-nCoV ARD).


The repatriated Filipinos onboard the chartered flight which landed at the Haribon Hangar in Clark Air Base included 29 adults and one infant.

Upon their arrival, the Filipinos were safely and swiftly transferred from the plane into their dedicated buses, and brought to the Athlete's Village in New Clark City in Tarlac which will be their home for the 14-day quarantine period.

Members of the Department of Foreign Affairs and five medical personnel – two doctors, two nurses and one medical technologist – from the Department of Health left Saturday evening on a chartered flight to fetch 36 Filipinos at Wuhan Tianhe International Airport.


However, there are who were left behind at the airport after showing flu-like symptoms during a screening test. These symptoms are considered the red flag signs of the disease which were not cleared for travel instead brought to facilities in China for medical treatment.
