Miss World PH: Miss Eco International runner-up Kelley Day 'topmost priority'

The Miss World Philippines (MWP) organization said they are “coordinating closely with Miss Eco International organization in ensuring the health and safety of all candidates in its recently concluded pageant," amid talk that some candidates of the recently-concluded pageant tested positive for the coronavirus.

The organization released the student on Tuesday, April 6. Miss World Philippines is the franchise-holder for Miss Eco International in the Philippines.

MWP’s National Director Arnold Vegafria said Kelley Day, the country's bet for the pageant, "remains [their] topmost priority."

"We remain optimistic as we await the results of the organizers' routinary medical testing procedures," he added.

Several pageant pages claimed some contestants were stranded in the host country Egypt after supposedly testing positive for COVID-19. 

Miss Peru’s national director, Jessica Newton, had posted on her Instagram stories: “@missperuofficial won’t send another queen to this pageant anymore, what [happened] was out of a terror movie and is not over yet. In the beginning, I believed it was just gossip but it is worse [than] you can imagine!”
