BREAKING: The first batch of Filipinos evacuated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan has arrived back in the Philippines, the Department of Foreign Affairs says

The first batch of Filipinos evacuated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan has arrived back in the Philippines, the Department of Foreign Affairs said.

70 Filipinos who have fallen ill to the coronavirus disease officially known as COVID-19. In total, 80 Filipinos who were on board the Diamond Princess tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to the Departments of Health and Foreign Affairs. Ten of them have recovered and given a clean bill of health, making them eligible for repatriation, the DFA said. The evacuees will again be tested for flu-like syptoms before landing at Clark. Those who manifest signs of respiratory illness will be isolated in one area in the aircraft and will be taken to a government-identified hospital for treatment. The remaining evacuees will all be placed under a 14-day quarantine at the New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac, as part of government policy. The medical and response teams, crew members, and other personnel who accompanied the Filipinos from Japan will also be quarantined. The new coronavirus has killed more than 2,700 people worldwide, mostly in China, since the outbreak began in Wuhan City, Hubei province on December 2019. In the Philippines, three Chinese nationals -- all from Wuhan -- have been infected with the virus. One of them died, while the remaining two have since recovered and left the country. In the search for people who have had contact with the three confirmed cases, a total of 516 individuals have tested negative for the virus, while the government awaits 44 more lab results.
