2 OFWs give birth in Subic quarantine hotel
A Subic hotel serving as a quarantine facility for returning overseas Filipino workers welcomed two healthy babies after two women gave birth to them upon arriving from Saudi Arabia.
According to information gathered by Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chair and administrator Wilma Eisma, the women were quarantined in the hotel and gave birth only days after being repatriated.
The government repatriation program has tapped the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) as an entry point for Philippine Airlines (PAL) flights carrying returning OFWs.
Eisma said the two women landed in the country on July 7 aboard PAL flight PR5683 from Dammam.
“Our information from the One-Stop-Shop Command at the Subic airport was that both deliveries went well and that the mothers and their babies were healthy,” the SBMA chief said.
“Following completion of the mandatory isolation and negative RT-PCR test results, they were soon discharged from the Subic quarantine facility,” Eisma said.
