Manila, Philippines – Iniulat na posibleng hindi na maulit ang surge ng Omicron variant sa Metro Manila, batay sa OCTA.

Ibinabala naman ng grupo ang mga rehiyon sa labas ng NCR sa maaaring pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID.

 “It’s unlikely that Omicron will return to the capital to initiate a surge. There’s no more wood to burn. With regards to the provinces, there is a concern and it’s going to be region by region, depending upon the level of vaccination and the health capacity how the impact of the Omicron surge will be on our kababayans there… I still pray for those other regions. It’s still going to be challenging for some,” lahad ni molecular biologist at OCTA fellow Fr. Nicanor Austriaco  sa panayam ng One News.

Tiniyak din ni OCTA fellow Dr. Guido David sa publiko na unti-unti nang bumababa ang trend ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa Metro Manila.

“[The] trend is really downward, we can be assured… We’re now down to high risk and I think within a few days by next week we’ll be down to moderate risk. In fact, I checked some of the local government data, we already have five local government units (LGUs) under moderate risk and that’s a good sign,” ani David.

Pasok aniya sa moderate risk classification ang Maynila, Malabon, Caloocan, Valenzuela, at Navotas.

 “It’s going to be still increasing in some provinces outside NCR Plus. In NCR Plus it’s already decreasing, even in Cavite, Rizal, and Bulacan we’re starting to see a decrease, but it’s still high in many other parts of the country,” babala pa ni David.

“The rest of the country will have to follow [because] the surge started later in the other parts of the country.” RNT/FGDC
