MANILA (UPDATE) - A plane from Jinjiang, China arrived in Davao City on Wednesday noon as health officers continued strict screening of passengers for the 2019 new coronavirus (nCoV).

All 79 passengers, including some Chinese tourists, were cleared of fever, said Dr. Wilson Lim, head of the airport's Bureau of Quarantine.

“Wala namang me lagnat. Napansin ko rin na lahat naka mask na pati mga flight attendant," he said.

Many Dabawenyos have canceled their trips to China, according to travel agent Ireine Campos. Davao City has direct flights to Jinjiang in Fujian province and Hong Kong.
