The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has agreed to raise the alert level in the following locations, according to Acting Presidential Spokesperson Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles:

On Thursday, 17,220 additional infections were reported, bringing the overall number of cases in the country to 2,888,917.

616 more individuals have recovered, increasing the total number of people who have recovered to 2,780,613, while 81 more people have died, bringing the total number of people who have died to 51,743.

Follow the procedures to the letter.

In a prerecorded Talk to the People on Thursday, President Rodrigo Duterte asked authorities and the public to continue enforcing minimal public health standards.

“We’re going back to a harsher quarantine regimen to limit coronavirus mobility and exposure.” Our minimal public health standards will be vigorously enforced, and violators will be dealt with in accordance with the law, particularly Republic Act No. 11332, or the Mandatory Reporting of Notifiable Diseases and Health Events of Public Concern Act,” he stated.

“Please follow those in charge who are implementing the rules and public standards, our countrymen.” He stated, “Must ito (This is a must), must obey.”

He also urged local officials, particularly barangay (village) captains, to apprehend people who fled their homes after refusing to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

β€œOtherwise. On a lengthy distance, you may have to deal with the police or the military,” he warned.

Metro Manila and the surrounding provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, and Rizal are on Alert Level 3 till January 15, while Laguna will be on a higher alert level from January 7 to 15.
