MANILA – A 42-year-old Filipina has committed suicide after completing her 14-day quarantine in Pasay City in the Philippines on Sunday (April 26).
The Overseas Worker Welfare Administration (OWWA) said that the Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) was staying at the OWWA-provided lodging house when she committed suicide on Sunday morning.
Authorities ruled out foul play.
