Manila, Philippines – Iginiit ng opisyal ng Healthcare Professionals Alliance Against COVID-19 (HPAAC) na epektibo pa rin ang minimum health standards sa pag-iwas na kumalat ang virus.

Sa panayam sa Balitanghali, sinabi ni Dr. Lei Alfonso na kahit mas mapanganib ang bagong coronavirus variant, hindi naman nabago ang ‘mode of transmission’ nito.

“Kahit wala pa ‘yong bakuna, kahit nandiyan na ‘yong variant, may panlaban pa rin po tayo at napakasimple pa rin,” punto ni Alfonso.

Samantala, anim pang ibang variants ang binabantayan sa buong mundo:

  •     South Africa: 501Y.V2, found in 10 countries and believed to be even more infectious than the UK variant

  •     Malaysia: A701B

  •     Nigeria: P681H

  •     Denmark: Cluster 5

  •     China: D614G, most widespread and dominant

  •     Japan: B.1.1.248, detected in travelers from Brazil
