More than 200 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) were stranded at the Clark International Airport after they were due to the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon.
According to GMA News, the OFWs arrived on Sunday from countries like Singapore, Australia, Spain, and Barcelona. Their arrival was transferred to Clark International Airport from Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila in which a community quarantine first took place.
The passengers cannot leave Clark since no domestic flights are going to their respective provinces. Some OFWs were forced to sleep on the floor of the airport.
The management of the international airport is doing its part to respond to the needs of the stranded passengers.
Due to the enhanced community quarantine, all trips, be it domestic land, sea and air travel are all canceled in Metro Manila.
Despite the stricter regulations to curb the further spread of COVID-19 in the country, the Philippines still has 15 new confirmed cases that bring the total infected to 217.
If there are new cases, there are also those patients who successfully recovered from COVID-19. Here are already 8 patients who recovered from the disease.
Patient 20 is the latest recovery. He is a 48-year-old Filipino who hails from Cavite and had a travel history in Japan. After testing the negative of the disease twice, he was discharged from the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine.
