On January 30, the Philippines confirmed its first case of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). The case involved a woman who traveled to the Philippines from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the outbreak. Days later, on February 2, the Philippines confirmed the first 2019-nCoV-death outside of China, after another patient – the woman's companion – who tested positive for the virus died on February 1.
A travel ban is currently in place against any person coming directly from China, Hong Kong, and Macau within the last two weeks. Only Filipino citizens and holders of permanent resident visas issued by the Philippine government are exempted from the ban.
