In the face of Omicron, PNP advocates for stronger adherence to health protocols.

After the government reported two cases of the Omicron form of the coronavirus illness 2019 on Thursday, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos encouraged the public to maintain minimal public health standards (Covid-19).
