Mayor Isko Moreno Supports Lowering of Alert Level Status in Metro Manila
ISKO MORENO – The Metro Manila Mayor revealed that he is behind the proposed lowering of Metro Manila to Alert Level 1.
The spike in the COVID-19 cases in several cities in Metro Manila in the first weeks of January 2021, following the holiday season, urged the national government to impose stricter measures. The government and the authorities placed the entire Metro Manila under Alert Level 3 initially for two (2) weeks but it was extended until the 31st day of the first month of the year.
The alert level in Metro Manila was downgraded to Alet Level 2 starting February. It was after the Department of Health (DOH) confirmed that the COVID cases in Metro Manila has peaked. The COVID vaccination continues across the country.
The vaccination is now open for eligible adults. A lot of people have also received their booster shots. Furthermore, kids aged 5-11 who are eligible for vaccination and allowed by their parents to get the jab can be vaccinated.
Amid the downtrend of the COVID cases in Metro Manila, Mayor Isko Moreno expressed his support on lowering the alert level status in the capital region. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Manila Mayor revealed that he is behind the proposed lowering of the status in Metro Manila to Alert Level 1.
According to Mayor Isko, lowering the alert level to the lowest status if the experts allow it will help more people in their livelihood. He stressed that there is a low rate of infection in the National Capital Region (NCR) and Metro Manila for several days now.
Based on the report, Mayor Isko Moreno stressed prior to his motorcade in Pasay City that he will support any opportunity that could make the lives of the people easier. He expressed that the government, on the other side, must have its system ready in dealing with the COVID-19.
