SOFRONIO ESPAÑOLA, Palawan — The rural health unit (RHU) here is monitoring the progress of a female overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who has opted to undergo home quarantine after arriving from Shanghai, China on February 4.
RHU Nurse Cathy Barroma told Palawan News they will be monitoring the progress of the OFW worker for two weeks.
“Ang OFW na ito ngayon ay naka home quarantine na sa kanilang tahanan at imo-monitor natin sya ng 14 days,” Barroma said.
She said the person’s monitoring period will end on February 18, “Kung saan kung wala naman syang makikitang sintomas kagaya ng ubo at sipon pati lagnat, ibig sabihin hindi na sya isasailalim sa people under investigation”.
She said part of their health monitoring is checking the person’s body temperature two times a day.
“Sa ngayon okay naman ang OFW na ito. Wala naman syang pinapakitang pagtaas ng temperature at sipon o anumang sintomas para sya ay isailalim sa PUI natin,” Barroma said.
