Philippines reopens its skies to incoming international flights

International flights have been allowed to resume flying into Manila with strict measures in light of the pandemic.

International flights can land in the Philippine capital again after the government reopened its airport.

Flights were stopped last week after the country could not cope with thousands of workers returning from overseas.

There have been more than 10,000 confirmed cases and 700 deaths in the country.
