“On this brand new week and after three months of daily monitoring COVID-19 cases among Filipinos abroad, the DFA reports no new confirmed cases and no new fatalities due to COVID-19 among our people across the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa,” the agency said.

“The only difference, however, is that the total number of DOH IHR (Department of Health, International Health Regulations) verified cases is now at 1,371, with five new cases in the Asia and the Pacific,” it added.

Meanwhile, 2,901 overseas Filipinos are still undergoing treatment.

Overall by region, Europe — which comprises 16 countries — has recorded 1,015 Filipino cases, including 472 undergoing treatment, 449 recoveries and 94 deaths.

“While today’s figures can be seen as a positive development, the DFA, together with its Foreign Service Posts, remains vigilant and steadfast in monitoring the status of Filipinos abroad, assisting those who are affected, and continuously working to safely bring our stranded nationals home, whenever possible. So that together, #WeHealAsOne,” said the DFA.
