• Airline passengers urged to declare health status


    Incoming passengers at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) were urged to clearly declare their health status as the government intensifies campaign against Zika and other viruses after Japan announced its first Zika infection. By raising alert levels and making mandatory to report potential cases, Philippines and Japan have beefed up efforts to keep the virus at bay since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared its spread overseas as a global public health emergency on Feb.1. Last month Manila International Airport Authority also provided quarantine officials the facilities needed to protect passengers and prevent entry of Zika virus.
