Currently the United States of America has the highest number of novel coronavirus 2019 disease or Covid-19 cases, as of press time the United States with 100,973 infections over Italy’s 86,498 and China’s 81,340.

“The United States reportedly plans to relax the entry of medical professionals and workers to lure them to work in its fight against the global contagion,” said Lagman in a statement.

“With the Philippines’ unabated escalation of the number of persons under investigation (PUIs), persons under monitoring (PUMs), and persons confirmed positive for the novel coronavirus, we need all available medical professionals and healthcare workers to assist in the campaign against the viral menace,” said Lagman.

“The ban must be coupled with a hefty increase in the salaries and allowances, including hazard pay, of medical frontline personnel in both public and private health facilities,” he added.
