An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) tasked to inspect Abu Dhabi’s government-run COVID-19 screening and vaccination facilities, himself ended up infected with the virus that he contracted not at work, but in his home.

Dan Lester Dabon said he contracted the virus from a family member whom he looked afer for three days while in sickbed.

“Akala namin normal sakit lang yung nangyayari sa kanya,” He said.

“I managed and provided care when he was so sick. We later learned that he was COVID-19 positive,” he added.

Dabon, who consequently spent three days of home isolation and another 15 in a quarantine facility where he stayed till Dec. 15 after getting two consecutive negative PCR results, said what happened should remind everyone not to let their guard down on the coronavirus.

He started his home quarantine on Nov. 27 even before learning that his sick relative was COVID-positive, apparently acting on suspicion which comes with his job being a risk assessor. He was admitted to the quarantine facility on Dec. 1.

Dabon, who has also opened a healthcare consulting services agency that aims to help bring healthcare standards in the Philippines to international standards, said he felt scared when he started feeling strange and later on tested positive.
