MECO reiterates OFWs not to conduct unnecessary travel back to Philippines

Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) is advising Filipino migrant workers not to conduct unnecessary travel back to the Philippines because they might not be able to come back to Taiwan, a MECO official said.

"They will need to get special paperwork from the government and their work places. It's very difficult, with no guarantee that they will be allowed to come back," Deputy Resident Representative Gilberto F. Lauengco from MECO said in a interview by CNA.

The move is also for the safety for the workers and their families.

MECO also advised all Filipino migrant workers to seek medical attention and notify the Philippine representative office if they develop any symptoms related to the coronavirus, Lauengco said.

Taiwan recorded its latest cases of COVID-19 Sunday, with the total number of imported cases from the Philippines climbing to a total of 24 cases since July 1, according to data provided by Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center.

The Philippines, meanwhile, had recorded more than 161,000 COVID-19 cases as of Sunda, according to the WHO.
