Philippines Declared H1N1-Free Destination

The Philippines is proudly touting that there has been no reported case of H1N1 flu in the island nation, and is thus declared as an H1N1-free destination.

The government is closely monitoring all incoming travelers in the country's six international airports, seaports and other airports servicing chartered flights with thermal scanners to detect body temperatures. Special isolation areas have also been put up in these ports to quarantine travelers exhibiting flu symptoms, especially those coming from places with reported cases of H1N1 flu.

The government further required public and private hospitals to be on heightened alert and to monitor and report suspicious cases of H1N1 flu. Regional tourism offices have been instructed to stay vigilant and work in close coordination with concerned government agencies in monitoring H1N1 cases.

No cancellations on tour packages to the country were reported by the tourism industry.
