The Department of Health will base alert levels on the vaccination rate of susceptible groups.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said during his Monday night presentation to President Rodrigo Duterte that the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Infectious Diseases (IATF) considers the 80 percent vaccination rate of the eligible population as one criterion in determining the alert levels in different areas.

“At kung hindi po sila ay makarating diyan po sa panukatan na iyan ay hindi po natin sila puwedeng ibaba (If they can’t comply with that, they can’t be de-escalated) to Alert Level 1,” Duque explained.

“So, maganda po itong karagdagang metric na atin pong isasama sa pag-assess ng sino ba ang at ano ba ang mga lugar na hinog na (So, this is a good metric in determining which places are ready) for an Alert Level 1,” he continued.
