The Philippines is currently on a crisis due to coronavirus or COVID-19. This disease was first recorded in China last December 2019. Wuhan City in the province of Hubei was locked for more than two (2) months due to the outbreak.
However, starting January 2020, several other countries started recording their initial coronavirus cases. The increase on the global cases continued and the World Health Organization declared the disease as pandemic – its effect is far beyond what was expected of it.
