Manila, Philippines — Posibleng maging “Delta resilient” ng ilang buwan ang National Capital Region (NCR) batay sa datos ng COVID-19 vaccination, ayon sa OCTA.

Sinabi ni OCTA Research fellow at molecular biologist Fr. Nicanor Austriaco na nakapagturok na ang ang local government units sa NCR ng first COVID-19 dose sa nasa 20 hanggang 70 porsyentong populasyon.

“Each LGU has vaccinated between 20 percent to 70 percent of their population, one dose, which suggests that a month from now or a month and a half from now, that [percentage] will be fully vaccinated people,” lahad nito sa ABS-CBN News Channel.

“And so, the data suggests that in a few months, the NCR particularly, may be ‘Delta resilient’ and if this is the case, this is good news for the country.”

Buhat nitong Hulyo 5, may kabuuang 19 kaso na ng Delta variant ang Pilipinas.

Naniniwala si Austriaco na ginagawa na ng gobyerno ang lahat upang matugunan ang mga kailangan.

“I am a Filipino-American and I have been struck by the tremendous gap between the U.S. and the Philippines, my two home countries, with regards to access to vaccines, so I am not going to fault the government at this time for the delayed rollout, we just simply could not get vaccines.”

“In terms of the vaccines… I’ve been impressed that given the severe global shortage, the Philippine government is doing as best as it can given that limitation to roll out to protect the Filipino people,” punto pa ng eksperto. RNT/FGDC
