No Filipino Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus in Spain, Philippine Consul General Adrian Cruz Says

A Philippine Envoy said that no Filipino has tested positive for the coronavirus disease 2019 in Spain despite experiencing a health crisis.

On Monday (March 23, 2020), Philippine Consul General Adrian Cruz said that no Filipino has been infected by the new coronavirus disease in Spain despite being one of the worst-hit countries by the deadly virus.

Cruz said that the agency is helping to monitor the Filipino migrant workers in Spain whose works had not been affected by the COVID-19. He also said that the majority of the Overseas Filipino Workers there are working in groceries and restaurants while some are caregivers.

“Sa ngayon, wala po kaming nakuhang opisyal na report na may mga Pilipino po na positive, Nandito naman po kami sa bahay bahay pero minomonitor pa din namin ang sitwasyon dito
tungkol sa COVID-19,”
Cruz said.

As of this writing, Spain recorded 28,572 cases of coronavirus including 1,720 deaths and 2,575 recoveries. The Spanish government is seeking to extend the state of emergency in the country until April 11, 2020.

Europe’s second-worst outbreak of coronavirus wants to control the spread of the virus while other regions are asking for stricter measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
