The number of Covid cases is expected to rise as a result of holiday-related movement, according to the Department of Health.

According to a health authority, instances of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) are predicted to rise as a result of holiday-related movement.

Department of Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire stated in a Viber message to reporters that the increase in the number of infections was also due to a lack of compliance with minimum public health requirements.

“We’re keeping an eye on things,” she said, “though we can’t say for sure that the rise in cases is related to the Omicron variant.” “We are urging the general public and local government entities to guarantee that safety measures are followed and that every Filipino is vaccinated.”

The Department of Health reported 889 new illnesses on Wednesday, up from 421 cases on Tuesday, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 2,839,790.

For the first time since October, the OCTA Research Group reported late Tuesday night that the optimism rate in the National Capital Region had improved by 5%.

The percentage of Covid-19 tests that were positive in a given area or region is known as the positivity rate.

The organisation urged the public to follow adequate health measures, noting that the increase could be more than a seasonal spike.

Acting Presidential Spokesperson, Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, told a press conference on Wednesday that the LGUs should enforce granular or targeted lockdowns in regions where Covid-19 cases are on the rise to prevent infections from reaching dangerous levels again.

He added President Rodrigo Duterte and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) are concerned about the increase in illnesses, and that local governments should increase measures to regulate people’s movement.

LGUs, according to Nograles, have the “obligation” to enforce granular lockdowns, especially in places where “clustering of instances” occurs.
