Dr. Loreche said in ABS-CBN's report that having been vaccinated does not mean that one will no longer contract the virus, except that if he does, the case will not be a serious one.

Other household members of the OFW also tested positive, but they were also asymptomatic, Inquirer reported.

"Ang pinakamahalaga nito sa ngayon ay wala siyang symptoms. 'Yung mga kasambahay niyang nahawa wala din pong sintomas. Pangatlo, lahat po sila asymptomatic, naka-quarantine na," Loreche further stated.

Manila Bulletin reported that five out of seven household members of the OFW were positive for COVID-19, but they are all currently isolated.
