However, there are some people who have died after bitten by venomous snake. The authorities have advised the Filipino people to avoid such reptiles to prevent unexpected incidents.
On Tuesday (February 15, 2022), an 18-year-old woman named Jovielyn Cervantes in the town of Guinobatan, Albay died after she was bitten by a snake. The incident happened at their bathroom in Sitio Bantunan, Barangay Palanas.
