Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque encouraged the public to look only on the fact that PH has already logged more than one (1) million cases of the disease but the recoveries. He stressed that over 900,000 patients have already recovered from it.
The presidential spokesman does not believe that the mark reached by the cases of coronavirus in the Philippines is a “negative reflection”. He also stressed that the world ranking shows that the government is managing the spread of the new variants of the disease well.
