Alarm levels in the Philippine capital region will be further eased starting today as COVID-19 infections are slowing down and vaccination rates are rising, said Philippine presidential spokesman Harry Roque.
The lowering of the alarm level in Metro Manila will continue until November 21, Roque said in a brief statement, adding that starting December 1, alarm level settings will be set every 15th and 30th of each month.
“Escalations, on the other hand, can be done at any time in the middle of the implementation period as guaranteed, while de-escalation can only be done at the end of the two-week evaluation period,” he said.
On Thursday, the Philippine Department of Health (DOH) reported 1,766 COVID-19 infections, bringing the number of confirmed cases in the Southeast Asian country to 2,795,642.
The DOH has reported less than 2,000 daily cases for two days since Wednesday when 1,591 cases were registered, the lowest since February 24th.
