Health Secretary Francisco Duque said that a Chinese tourist who died in the Philippines due to 2019 novel coronavirus will be cremated Wednesday.
A 44-year-old Chinese tourist from Wuhan City in China was supposed to be cremated within 12 hours after his death. According to Health Secretary Francisco Duque said that a Chinese-Filipino business group, who initially agreed to shoulder the cremation of a 44-year-old Chinese tourist, backed out of its promise.
Instead, Duque added, a funeral parlor in Araneta Avenue in Quezon City agreed to do the cremation of a Chinese tourist with the consent of the fatality’s family. He also said that he directed the health facilities bureau to check whether it was against the law to deny cremation services to those patients who died of disease.
Duque cited information from the World Health Organization (WHO), saying that cadavers carrying the 2019 novel coronavirus were “no longer infectious.”
