“At the very outset of the surge of news reports concerning Covid-19, the President has categorically mandated relevant instrumentalities of the government to be absolutely transparent to the Filipino people as regards this health issue, aware that we have the right to be informed of the conditions surrounding us,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a statement.
The latest case is a 48-year-old man who had traveled to Japan and a 62-year-old man with no travel history abroad.
The 48-year-old is in stable condition, while the 62-year-old contracted severe pneumonia, and is ow admitted in RITM in Alabang.
Panelo said that local government units(LGUs) have een ordered to strengthen their infection prevention and control protocols.

“The DOH, which has been following established international protocols, continues to monitor persons under investigation. Teams have been formed to do contact tracing,” he said.
Panelo also urges everyone to be the “voice of calm and sobriety.”
“Accordingly, we also ask the public to be scrupulous in reading informative materials and not to share unverified and unofficial information that may only cause undue panic among the population,” Panelo said.
