Manila, Philippines – Posibleng pumalo ang arawang kaso COVID-19 case ng Pilipinas sa 20,000 o higit pa dahil na rin sa pagkalat ng Delta variant ng coronavirus, batay kay OCTA Research fellow Dr. Guido David.

“Since we reached 19,000 a day, it could increase to more than 20,000 new COVID-19 cases per day, given that our reproduction number is still greater than 1 [nationwide],” saad ni David sa Laging Handa briefing.

“But I don’t see it breaching 30,000.”

“When you get fully vaccinated, it takes six weeks for it to fully take effect. Delta’s transmission is faster than the effect of the vaccination. Delta variant is a big factor because it is highly contagious. It is really hard to manage, especially if there is no strict compliance with minimum public health standards,” panig naman ni OCTA Research’s Professor Ranjit Rye.

“We really saw a decline in compliance of minimum public health standards. And so we suggest that people should stay home and if they need to go out to go to work, they should observe minimum public health standards.”
