All the government personnel who accompanied them during their 24-hour voyage had also yielded negative RT-PCR results. RT-PCR is the shorthand for Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction.

DSWD 9 sent the returnees to their respective home provinces.

The following are the returnees from Zamboanga Peninsula: Zamboanga City, 25; Zamboanga del Norte, 4; Zamboanga del Sur, 7; and Zamboanga Sibugay, 13.

Sixty-two of them are from Basilan, 59 from Sulu, and 172 from Tawi-tawi.

Forty-one are from other regions except for the 10 who have no definite address because they grew up in Malaysia.
