MANILA, Philippines— The 52 persons deprived of liberty (PDL) or high profile inmates from Building 14 are now negative of COVID-19, an official from the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) said Wednesday.

“They are all negative sa COVID-19,” BuCor Spokesman Gabriel Chaclag told reporters at the Kapihan sa Manila Bay.


The 52 inmates are from Building 14, the most secure area of Bilibid’s Maximum Security Compound. It houses high profile inmates, mostly convicted of drugs.

However, Chaclag said that some of the inmates would remain segregated as advised by the doctors because some have mild symptoms.


He said the inmates will eventually return to Building 14 once the doctors have given their go signal.
