MANILA — Some schools across Metro Manila have suspended classes Friday as a precaution against the novel coronavirus or 2019-nCoV.
St. Paul College Pasig has suspended classes from Feb 7 to 16 and asked students to give their travel history as a precautionary measure in tracing possible strain of the pathogen.
“Though we have no reported or suspected case in our school, we are constrained to take such action in order to minimize interaction and exposure within the SPCP Community in the meantime,” the letter said.
The University of the East has also suspended classes up to the Senior High School level this Friday. However, the school did not state a reason for the suspension.
