Face masks and vaccines, according to the IATF, are critical in preventing a rise.
MANILA, Philippines — Face masks should be worn both indoors and outdoors, according to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).
Other nations, according to Secretary Vince Dizon, IATF-EID deputy chief implementor, have greater daily incidences than the Philippines since face masks are no longer necessary.
“Face mask pa rin kailangan. Ito ang isa sa mga napakalaking rason, kaya mababa ang kaso natin kumpara sa ibang mga bansa (Ayon sa mga sinasabi ng mga eksperto, ito ang isa sa pag napakalaking rason, kaya mababa ang kaso natin kum It is one of the main reasons, according to specialists, why we have a smaller number of cases than other nations) “”Back-to-Vax Champion” Covid-19 immunization ramp-up event at SM North Edsa in Quezon City, Dizon said.
Aside from the face mask rule being relaxed, Dizon mentioned increased mobility as another factor for the rise in the number of cases in other countries.
More than two years after the pandemic began, Dizon said the world must learn to live with Covid-19.
“Why are we making an effort to coexist with Covid-19? Because we have no choice. Because there is now a greater problem in the globe, namely the global economy, “he stated
Even when the Omicron strain attacked in January, the Philippines, according to Dizon, handled effectively with the virus.
“While it’s true that we had 400 instances yesterday, the most since April, it’s because we’ve typically stayed below 500 cases every day since March. We’ve already figured out how to deal with it. We already know how to manage Covid-19 and have done it successfully “he stated
Dizon also advocated for booster doses and vaccinations for children aged 5 to 17.
“Bakuna is wearing a mask. If ‘yung dalawang ‘yun ay gagawin,’ magiging okay po tayo. Po tayo kelangan mag-Alert Level 2 hindi po tayo kelangan tayo kelangan tay There is no need for you to be on lockdown. Ang trabaho, panonood ng sine, at pagkain sa labas po tuloy-tuloy. Simply said, magpabakuna, magpa-boost, and mag-mask po tayo (Vaccination and mask). We’ll be fine if these two are completed. There is no need to return to Alert Level 2. We don’t need to put ourselves on lockdown. Jobs will continue to exist, as will going to the movies and eating in restaurants. However, we must get vaccinated, boostered, and wear masks) “he stated
The event was attended by Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, Local Government Secretary Eduardo Ao, and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairperson Romando Artes.
Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, in a video message, advised the public to get immunized, even those who had not yet received booster doses.
“Magpabakuna na po tayo kung mahal po natin ang ating mga front-liners. Ang pagtaas ng kaso ay mas ma-iiwasan po ang pagtaas ng ating (If we love our front-liners, we should get ourselves vaccinated.) We’ll keep the number of cases from rising and our health-care system from collapsing “Go, it was said.
