Metro Manila under Alert Level 2 from Nov. 5 to 21 — Roque

MALACANANG and IATF spokesperson Harry Roque said on Thursday Metro Manila will shift to an eased quarantine level starting this weekend.

This after as the number of new COVID-19 infections fell, lower than 2,000 for two consecutive days.

The inter-agency task force on COVID-19 approved the recommendation to place the capital region under Alert Level 2 from Nov. 5 to 21, down from Alert Level 3 first imposed on Oct. 16.

Roque said the IATF also approved the recommendation to base the alert level assignments in the National Capital Region on data that is nearest to the implementation date.

This means that starting December, alert level assignments will be determined every 15th and 30th of the month.

However, the alert levels may be raised any time within the implementation period, while de-escalations can only be done at the end of the 2-week assessment period.

Majority of the country reversed a Delta variant-caused surge in cases, according to OCTA Research. This can be attributed to wide vaccine coverage, lockdown, and the public’s adherence to minimum health standards, the group’s Prof. Guido David said.
