Note
: The numbers of deaths reported each day appears to be very inaccurate. eg:

From the 113 deaths reported on 18 Jul 2020, only 40 actually died in July. 58 of them died in June and 15 died in May. 

The 159 deaths reported for 15 August 2020 included 57 in August, 61 in July, 37 in June, 3 in May, and 1 in April.
This indicates that there could be many more deaths from May and June that have still not been “officially” reported.  And of course, many July deaths may not be reported for a few months.

DOH Press Release / 2 February 2020

The Department of Health (DOH) and the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) today revealed that as of yesterday, February 1, 2020, twenty-four (24) patients under investigation (PUIs) tested negative for the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) while two (2) tested positive. Samples from four (4) other PUIs are currently being tested at RITM.

The two confirmed cases are the previously-announced 38-year-old Chinese female and her companion, a 44-year-old Chinese male who were both admitted for isolation and supportive treatment at San Lazaro Hospital in Sta. Cruz, Manila. Both patients are from Wuhan, China and arrived in the Philippines via Hong Kong last January 21, 2020. The second confirmed case was admitted for pneumonia last January 25, 2020 after experiencing fever, cough, and sore throat.

DOH also confirmed that the 44-year-old male died yesterday, February 1, 2020. Over the course of the patient’s admission, he developed severe pneumonia due to viral and bacterial infections (S. pneumoniae and Influenza B). In his last few days, the patient was stable and showed signs of improvement, however, the condition of the patient deteriorated within his last 24 hours resulting in his demise.

“I would like to emphasize that this is an imported case with no evidence of local transmission. We are currently working with the Chinese Embassy to ensure the dignified management of the remains according to national and international standards to contain the disease,” Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III said.

DOH is assuring the public that all measures needed to contain the spread of the virus is being strictly implemented and followed. San Lazaro Hospital has implemented rigorous infection control protocols while caring for these patients. Both patients were isolated following strict isolation standards, and all health personnel who came in contact with them practiced stringent infection control measures and wore appropriate personal protective equipment.

The Epidemiology Bureau (EB) of the Department is currently conducting contact tracing of passengers aboard the flights of the two positive cases. EB has secured the manifestos of the flights and is in close coordination with the concerned airlines. Contact tracing activities are ongoing in Cebu and Dumaguete, and in other places where the patients stayed and traveled to.

“The Philippine Government has already implemented a temporary travel ban for travelers coming from China, Macao, and Hong Kong. DOH is monitoring every development on the 2019-nCoV very closely and is taking proactive measures to contain the spread of this virus in our country. This health event is fast-evolving and fluid. We are continuously recalibrating our plans and efforts as the situation develops,” Duque assured.

“We are providing the public with constant updates and advisories as frequently as possible, so all I ask from the public now is to heed the advisories from official DOH channels and to refrain from sharing unverified and unvalidated information. I assure the public that we will keep you abreast of any information that we have,” he added.

Currently, there are no reports of community spread of the virus within the country. However, the public is still reminded to practice prevention measures such as proper hand hygiene and observance of cough etiquette.

As of 12 NN yesterday, February 1, 2020, DOH has reported five (5) additional patients under investigation (PUIs), bringing the total recorded number of PUIs to thirty-six (36). Twenty-three (23) PUIs are currently admitted and isolated, while ten (10) have been discharged under strict monitoring. DOH also reported a total of two (2) confirmed cases with one (1) mortality. The previously-reported PUI mortality was found to be negative for 2019-nCoV.

“The new developments warrant a more diligent approach in containing the threats of the 2019-nCoV. The Department of Health is continuously improving and scaling up its public health measures and reminds the public to remain calm and vigilant,” Secretary Duque concluded.


The second COVID-19 death in the Philippines was a 67-year-old Filipino woman (PH35). She first showed symptoms on Feb. 29, and tested positive for the virus on March 11, and was receiving treatment at the Manila Doctors Hospital in Ermita.

Outbound Travel from the Philippines Oct 2020

Filipinos can Leave the Philippines fronm Oct 21.

BI Commissioner Jaime Morente has said:
“Starting October 21, the BI will be allowing the departure of Filipinos with non-essential travel.”

Initially, only foreign nationals, overseas Filipino workers, permanent visa holders, students enrolled abroad, participants accepted in exchange visitor programs, as well as those who had essential travel, were allowed to depart.

The new ruling, however, expands this to include non-essential travel.

“Outbound tourism is now allowed for Filipinos, subject to compliance with protocols set by the IATF,” said Morente.

IATF Resolution no. 79 requires outbound Filipino tourists to present a round trip ticket, health and travel insurance, and a negative antigen result at least 24 hours before departure.

However, according to the ruling, if the country of destination requires an RT-PCR test, then the same must be presented instead.

Departing Filipinos shall also be required to sign a declaration acknowledging the risks of their
travel, to be provided by airline check-in counters. “Afterwhich, passengers will still undergo regular immigration assessment.”

No Visa Free Entry during COVID

No Visa Free Entry in Philippines.

BI Commissioner Jaime Morente has stressed that those who are eligible to enter the Philippines are required to secure an entry visa from Philippine Embassies or Consulates, prior to their arrival.

This includes foreign spouses of a Philippine citizen, who previously enjoyed visa free entry.

Nationals from 157 countries, who previously enjoyed visa free entry, have been required to obtain a visa in advance since March.

However, some people are still arriving without a visa. The law requires that these people are refused entry, even if they are a spouse of a Philippine citizen.

Note: The numbers of deaths reported each day appears to be very inaccurate. eg:
From the 113 deaths reported on 18 Jul 2020, only 40 actually died in July. 58 of them died in June and 15 died in May.
This indicates that there could be many more deaths from May and June that have still not been “officially” reported.  And of course, many July deaths may not be reported for a few months.

Foreigners Leaving Philippines. Press Release 30 August 2020

PRESS RELEASE – Bureau of Immigration

30 August 2020

BI eases requirements for departing aliens to prevent crowding in immigration offices

MANILA, Philippines – The Bureau of Immigration (BI) announced it is again, easing its rules and requirements, for departing foreign nationals due to the continuing rise of COVID-19 cases in the country.

Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente issued a directive allowing foreigners with visas approved by the BI to leave the country before they could be issued their alien certificate of registration identity card (ACR I-Card).

According to Morente, the Bureau will also no longer require departing aliens with approved and implemented visas to secure an ACR I-Card waiver order.

He disclosed that the policy would be implemented until end of this year and that its effectivity may be extended or revoked earlier depending on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

“By allowing these aliens to leave pending release of their I-Cards, the number of people going to our offices will be lessened and physical distancing will be achieved, thus preventing the further spread of the virus among our frontline personnel and clients,” Morente said.

BI Port Operations Acting Chief Grifton Medina disclosed that in compliance with the BI Chief’s directive, immigration officers at the airports will no longer require departing aliens with BI-approved visas but who do not have their I-Cards yet, to present an I-Card waiver order from the Bureau.

Medina said that in lieu of the I-Card waiver order, the passengers will be asked to present their passport with visa implementation stamp and official receipts of payment for their ACR I-Card waiver application fee, Emigration Clearance Certificate/Reentry Permit (ECC/RP) or Special Return Certificate (SRC).

“The passenger will also be advised to safekeep the copies of his official receipts as the same should be presented to our immigration officer upon his return to the Philippines,” Medina added.

It will be recalled that the BI previously allowed aliens with BI-approved visas to leave without I-Cards last March when Luzon was placed under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) and modified ECQ which prompted the Bureau to suspend services or scale down operations in most of its offices.

The BI resumed issuing ACR I-Cards and I-Card waiver orders in June after the Bureau launched its online appointment system for clients after Metro Manila was placed under less restrictive general community quarantine (GCQ).

However, the BI recently bared that despite the implementation of stricter health protocols, more than 70 of its employees have been infected with the virus.
