Taiwan automatically puts Philippines to Level 1 travel warning due to surging COVID-19 cases

Countries and regions not covered in the Central Epidemic Command Center's Level 2 or 3 travel warnings are automatically under a Level 1 travel watch, which includes the Philippines on that level.

Under Level 1 travel 'watch' travelers are asked to observe local COVID-19 response regulations and incoming travelers to Taiwan are required to observe 14 days of self-health management, in a report from CNA.

Philippines currently recorded 11 fatalities of COVID-19 out of its 140 confirmed cases and still surging.

Meanwhile, Level 2 alert means that travelers will be required to observe 14 days of self-health management by minimizing time spent in public, wearing a face mask and checking their temperature twice daily. Level 3 on the other hand is a mandatory 14-day quarantine.

Level 3 travel warnings include China, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Italy and Iran.

CECC advised the public to avoid flying recently, as passengers in cabins lacking ventilation have a much higher risk of contracting infectious diseases. Those who travel by air are advised to wear a face mask throughout their flight.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, with more than 110 countries reporting confirmed cases and more than 70 countries reporting indigenous transmissions.
