LIST: Confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Philippines

By BNN Research

LAST January 30, 2020, the Department of Health (DOH) confirmed the first case of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the Philippines when a 38-year-old female Chinese patient under investigation (PUI) was found out to be positive after her laboratory results arrived from the Victorian Infectious Disease Reference Laboratory in Melbourne, Australia.

The confirmed case arrived in the Philippines from Wuhan, China via Hong Kong last January 21, 2020. The patient sought consult and was admitted in one of the country’s government hospitals last January 25 after experiencing mild cough.

After recovering from 2019-NCoV, the patient lfet the country and returned back to China. However, the virus scare has since spread like wildfire, until it recorded a high 307 cases, Saturday afternoon.

This list will be regularly updated as the situation progresses.
