On January 30, the Department of Health finally confirmed the first case of nCov in the Philippines. The first case was a Chinese national who is confined to a government hospital in Manila.

This pushed Filipinos to request for the government to ban all flights from China. The government responded by saying that doing so might affect our diplomatic relationship with the country.
