THE Department of Health (DOH), in coordination with Bases Conversion and Development Authority and Provincial Government of Tarlac, assured that the Filipino repatriates from China are well accommodated and closely monitored.
"All 32 repatriates landed safely and free of any signs and symptoms, hence, they were all sent to New Clark City for close observation and monitoring for 14 days," Health Undersecretary Gerardo Bayugo said in a press briefing Sunday, February 9.
If an individual, during his or her stay in the quarantine facility, suddenly shows signs and symptoms, the DOH has deployed medical teams to immediately assess and facilitate transfer to hospital for close monitoring.
"DOH will be taking charge of the management, coordination and logistics of the entire quarantine process. Rest assured that repatriated Overseas Filipino Workers will be attended to and treated with utmost care. Regular monitoring will be conducted to ensure their health and safety," Bayugo added. (PIA)
