Ex-COVID-19 Task Force Official Claims One Condition in Curbing the Cases in PH
COVID-19 CASES IN PH – Former COVID-19 Task Force adviser Tony Leachon spoke on curbing the cases in the Philippines in three (3) months.
Recently, the Philippines faced its highest daily record of new COVID-19 cases in the country. On Thursday, the country logged 8,773 new cases of the disease that has rocked several healthcare systems across the globe.
Declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) a pandemic, even the international body was alarmed by how fast it has spread from nations to nations beginning in 2020. WHO even warned countries not to let their guards down early as it may paved the way for a 2nd wave of the pandemic.
More than 200 countries and territories recorded cases of COVID-19. In the Philippines, a huge part of the country is currently under the NCR Plus Bubble, a measure with additional limitations.
The recent spike in the COVID-19 cases in PH is undeniably alarming. It happens amid the fact that new variants of the coronavirus disease were detected.
Recently, Tony Leachon, a former adviser of the COVID-19 Task Force in the country, claimed that there is one way he believes in curbing the COVID-19 cases in PH. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the surge can be contained f the vaccination drive will push “without rest for three months”.
Leachon cited Israel that recorded a drop in its COVID-19 cases in 3 months. According to him, it has the highest vaccination rate across the globe.
“Kaya kung mabibilisan natin ‘yung pagbabakuna natin na 24/7, ibig sabihin walang tulugan … gagawin natin ng 3 buwan, pwede nating mapababa,” the former COVID-19 Task Force Adviser said.
However, based on the report, Leachon also cited that one challenge is the doses of COVID-19 vaccines that the Philippines has. Pushing hard with the vaccination program may not be sustainable if there are not enough vaccines.
Currently, the vaccination of the healthcare workers against COVID-19 is ongoing. They are the top priority in the vaccination ladder as they are the frontliner in the fight against the pandemic.
