The Department of Health in Region 9 (DOH-9) has cleared 23 persons under monitoring (PUMs) for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) in the region after having completed the required 14-day home quarantine.

Dr. Dennis Antonio Dacayanan, Regional Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (RESU) Cluster head, said Monday the 23 PUMs had gone on vacation in China or Hong Kong.
