After weeks of new cases in the single digits, this is the second day that the DFA reports a surge in cases among expatriate Filipinos across 94 countries, after recording 153 new cases last Friday, June 11. According to the DFA’s website, the spike is due to an increase in reported cases in Asia and the Pacific.
