Two more students in the Philippines have tested positive for COVID-19.

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare confirmed the two new positive cases today during his weekly address.

The total number of students in the Philippines that have tested positive for COVID-19 is now 14.

Tests are being coordinated by the Philippines Red Cross society. As part of the national government's safety protocols students will only be allowed on the charter flight if they have tested negative for all three tests.
