The smooth transition of pandemic policy to the following administration has been observed.

MANILA – The National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19’s special medical adviser expects a smooth transition of vaccination policies and pandemic response tactics to the new administration.

Dr. Ted Herbosa said he is confident that the country’s whole-of-government approach to combating the pandemic will be sustained by the next set of governing officials, particularly the next secretaries of the Departments of Health and Interior and Local Government, in a televised public briefing on Friday (DILG).

“I believe this will be part of the transition team’s conversations — from both the current and incoming administrations,” he said.

According to President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s campaign, former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chief Benhur Abalos may succeed Secretary Eduardo Ao as DILG chief.

Abalos resigned from his position to become Marcos’ campaign manager and a member of the transition team.

The policies in the Covid-19 response and immunization campaign, according to Herbosa, will be kept, if not improved, by the future administration.

“Ito ang nagdala sa atin sa sitwasyon na mayroon tayo ngayon, Alert Level 1,” says the narrator. (Vaccination has brought us to this point; we are at Alert Level 1) Because our cases were only 100 or more every day, we were able to hold a large nationwide election. So, we witnessed the consequences of our enormous immunization push from the previous year,” he explained.

Herbosa believes the Marcos government would continue to vaccinate until the program reaches 90 million Filipinos, which he considers to be one of the most crucial aspects of the new administration’s first 100 days.

“Ang ay ituloy pa rin itong (My advise to those who will replace us is to continue the) Covid immunization,” he stated.
