Philippines re-asses travel ban to Taiwan, MECO recommends to lift it or Taiwan will retaliate

Philippine government could decide within today (Feb 13) until Friday (Feb 14) whether or not to lift a travel ban on Taiwan according to Department of Health undersecretary Eric Domingo.

"The inter-agency task force has assigned a communication person for that, so anything that has to do with that will have to come from the task force," Eric Domingo said in a press conference.

The task force reassessing the situation regularly and probably will come up with an announcement regarding the travel until Friday.

Domingo explained the ban as being driven by WHO, which classifies Taiwan as part of China rather than as a separate entity.

The Philippines' representative in Taiwan, Angelito Banayo, chairman of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office said he has recommended to the national government in Manila to lift the travel ban imposed.

Banayo said there were proposals for retaliation against the Philippines" when Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen convened a special cabinet meeting to discuss Manila's travel restriction on Taiwan.
