DOH Appeals to Public Not to Celebrate New Year’s Eve with Many People
The Department of Health (DOH) has appealed to the public not to celebrate New Year’s eve with too many people amid an ongoing health crisis.
The DOH encourages people to consider carefully how they will celebrate the new year. The number of patients testing positive for the virus has increased in recent days, according to the Department of Health, and people should be more cautious.
All Filipinos, whether vaccinated or not, are advised not to party with too many people, according to the department. The department also stressed that having simply their family around him, or the so-called family bubble would be preferable.
The DOH added that if you have to meet up with friends or coworkers, he recommends not eating at the same time. We can meet for a while but don’t take off the face mask, it’s remarked.
The DOH wants to remind everyone that roughly 1.5 million seniors are currently unvaccinated. When infected, this sector is the most hazardous, thus even if someone is vaccinated, they can still infect others, based on the report.
Especially now that the highly contagious omicron form has arrived in the United States. Health protocol adherence, such as social separation, hand washing, and wearing a face mask, should be maintained, he noted. They also cautioned visitors from other countries not to casually stroll about the Philippines.
