MANILA, Philippines — The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) said Tuesday that it has not received a report of Filipinos testing positive for COVID-19 in Shanghai, China amid the surge of coronavirus cases there.

“Nagkaroon nga talaga ng surge doon dahil nagkaroon ng mga ilang asymptomatic cases nitong March 21. Mayroong mga naramdaman na lockdown at minabuti ng Shanghai government na magkaroon ng contact tracing at mass testing para matunton ‘yung positive cases,” OWWA administrator Hans Leo Cacdac said in an interview with ABS-CBN’s Teleradyo.
