Statement of Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar  on the  COVID-19 situation affecting our OFWs in Hong Kong

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is personally saddened learning the unfortunate plight of some overseas Filipino workers in Hong Kong as a result of the recent surge of COVID-19 cases in the Special Administrative Region.  

Our government is promptly responding to the situation, primarily through our Consulate in Hong Kong, and has been providing protection and assistance to our kababayans such ensuring and securing isolation facilities for their fast recovery.

The government will be mounting operations for repatriation services, which will be spearheaded by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.

Secretary Lorenzana is now closely coordinating with the Department of Foreign Affairs and our Consulate for the deployment of government air assets, such as our C130s, and/or chartered commercial flights to be sent for those who want to be repatriated.
