Regular SC disinfection; no case surge

Following a thorough cleaning before the weekend, the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday put a stop to rumors that cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) were increasing among its staff.

On Friday, court employees left earlier than normal to make room for the cleaning.

The half-day timetable was mandated, according to SC spokesperson Brian Keith Hosaka, for the regularly planned disinfection at the High Court facility in Malate, Manila.

Regarding the claims that the number of Covid-19 cases at SC was rising, Hosaka reacted, “(That is) incorrect.”

According to Hosaka, the tribunal’s schedule, including the disinfection, is “based on the advice of the Office of Administrative Services.”

The SC has embraced a number of innovations since the Covid-19 outbreak broke out in March 2020, including videoconferencing in subordinate courts to reduce in-person meetings and a modified work week to prevent overcrowding in offices.

Even the Bar test and swearing-in ceremony this year took place somewhere else.

The Department of Health announced 2,018 more instances of Covid-19 on Sunday, increasing the total number of active cases to 13,818.

The 1,057 infections registered from June 27 to July 3 were nearly doubled by the new infections.
