Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 19) - A Filipino domestic worker tested positive for COVID-19 in Kuwait, said the Philippine Embassy.

The Philippine Embassy to Kuwait said the Filipino patient had close contact with a person who traveled recently to the United Kingdom.

Yet, health authorities said the patient is in stable condition and the embassy and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration are currently monitoring her.

With this development, the embassy reminds all Filipinos in Kuwait to stay at home to prevent the further spread of the virus, which has infected more than 200,000 people worldwide.
