The Philippines has 1 confirmed coronavirus case. Is the country capable of handling an outbreak?
The Department of Health confirmed the first case of 2019-nCoV in the Philippines. The patient is a 38-year-old woman who arrived in the country on January 21 from Wuhan in China, the ground of the newly discovered strain of coronavirus.
Before the first confirmed case in the Philipines, the number of suspected cases of the new coronavirus strain rose to 27 yesterday, which triggered concerns on the Philippines’ capability to handle another outbreak.
This development came after rumors of suspected cases with the new strain called the 2019-nCoV or Wuhan coronavirus in some parts of Metro Manila caused a social media scare over the weekend.
The health agency posted the announcement on its Facebook account on January 28. It also attached an infographic on the regions of the country where the patients being monitored are located.

Amid shortage of N95 masks, DOH official says ‘Be creative” – use shirts, diapers, undies
Health Assistant Secretary Maria Francia Laxamana said shirts could be turned into a ninja-style mask, while others may opt to use diapers and undergarments to cover their nose and mouth from the hazardous ash fall.
“Ang diapers open, so puwede siya. Actually, kung titingnan ninyo ang mga diapers, di ba sa mga bata, keep it dry. Dry siya talaga. So ngayon puwede ninyong gawin, basa-basain ninyo ng kaunti siya para hindi kayo ma-suffocate (Diapers can be used. If you look at diapers for kids, it says ‘keep it dry.’ So now, you can moisten them so you won’t suffocate),” she said in the “Laging Handa” (Always Ready) press conference in Malacañang on government efforts in dealing with the latest natural calamity.
“Very good, creative, practical way. Worse comes to worst, wala na kayong makuha, ‘yun ang pwede ninyong gawin (That’s a very good, creative, and practical way. Worse comes to worst and you can’t find any mask, you can use that).”
She said people could also use surgical masks or damp handkerchiefs or towels as substitutes for the N95 respiratory masks, as well as other common items.
“Mayroon pa ibang creative ways of doing things. Isa po yung kamiseta, ilagay ninyo po. Mayroon pong isang creative, ‘yung bra at panty (There are other creative ways of doing things. You can use a shirt. Another creative way is to use a bra and pair of panties),” she said.
