BI, CIDG to track “roaming” patients

Francis Wakefield



Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra yesterday revealed that the Bureau of Immigration (BI) has been closely working with the Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) to track down the Chinese nationals who were allegedly treated in a makeshift facility in Clark, Pampanga which was recently raided for illegal operations.

According to Guevarra, the patients might still be “dangerously roaming around” following the raid on the makeshift medical facility in a villa inside the Fontana Leisure Park in Clark, Pampanga which was said to be treating Chinese patients with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“If found, they will be brought to legitimate hospitals or quarantine facilities for proper treatment, without prejudice to charging those responsible for this illegal operation,” Guevarra said.

Police arrested two Chinese nationals identified as Ling Hu, the alleged owner of the villa used as makeshift hospital, and Seung-Hyun Lee, an alleged pharmacist, while the management of the Fontana Leisure Park was also held liable for allowing illegal activities to take place within the property.
