Some OFWs positive for coronavirus escape from quarantine facilities - Coast Guard

Some OFWs who later turned positive for COVID-19 have escaped from quarantine facilities, the Philippine Coast Guard said, according to PCG spokesperson Commodore Armand Balilo, in an interview over DZBB.

“May mga nakatakas sa mga hotel na 'yan at ang masama nito, lumabas ang results na positive sila. Ngayon nandoon na sila sa bahay nila. Nakahalubilo ang pamilya, ‘yung community,” Balilo said.

He said that those who escaped may be charged for violating the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act. Authorities are now already searching for the OFWs.

“Iho-hold kung sakali eventually dahil may vina-violate siguro sila dito sa Heal as One protocol. May balak po na sampahan ng kaso. Iimbestigahan po namin kung sino ‘yung mga kasabwat nitong tumakas na hotel personalities,” he added.

Balilo appealed to OFWs in the quarantine facilities to be patient in waiting for their swab test result and clearance certificate. So far, according to PCG, there are 6,000 returning OFWs who tested negative for the coronavirus disease has been given certificates that they can use to secure transportation back to their home.
