In an report by PNA, DOH-13 director Jose Llacuna Jr. clarified that the individuals have no symptoms of the feared coronavirus and they were placed under close monitoring only “because of their travel to China in the past 14 days.”

“They have no symptoms of the novel coronavirus. They are considered Persons Under Monitoring or PUM because of their travel to China in the past 14 days. These PUMs are also cooperating with our health personnel,” Llacuna said.

As per other local reports, some of the PUMs are in General Luna town in Siargao Island in Surigao del Norte province, while others are in Cabadbaran City in Agusan del Norte.

Llacuna also explained that PUM is different from PUI or person under investigation.

PUM, he told PNA, has no symptoms of 2019-nCoV but must be placed under monitoring due to his or her history of travel to China in the past 14 days. PUI, on the other hand, has symptoms such as fever, cold, and cough and has a history of travel to China in the past 14 days.

He said PUI cases need to be admitted to hospitals for isolation.
