Infected Filipina is recovered and in good spirits, says PCG

19 February 2020

The first Filipina to get infected by the novel coronavirus or Covid-19 is healthy and in good spirits, says Consul General Raly Tejada, who spoke with her on the phone.

Here is a statement from the Philippine Consulate:


The Consulate General had a brief telephone conversation with our kababayan. Her voice sounded normal and she is in good spirits. She also has no symptoms (No fever, no colds and no cough). She said that she is well taken care but hospital visits are not allowed given that she is in isolation. Doctors told her she could be released soon if further tests come out negative. She asked that we maintain her privacy and keep her identity secret. The Consulate will continue to monitor her condition and render all necessary assistance.

If you are one of her friends who hung out with her outside City Hall in Central in Feb 9, please contact Hong Kong’s Center for Health Protection so you can be tested for the coronavirus. The link to their website is here:
