Manila, Philippines – Pag-uusapan pa ng Inter-Agency Task Force kung magpapatupad pa rin ng travel ban sa gitna ng pagkalat ng Omicron variant sa iba pang panig ng bansa, batay kay Health Secretary Francisco Duque III.

“This will be the subject of our IATF discussion this afternoon. Precisely because based on the recent rounds of our genomic sequencing, we already see more and more of Omicron cases. And also, there are more than 150 countries now, I believe, that have been affected by the Omicron variant,” lahad ni Duque sa CNN Philippines’ The Source.

“So we will see if it is still practical to implement our travel ban. As a matter of policy this will have to be resolved by the IATF en banc.”

Naunang sinabi ng Department of Health na Omicron variant na ang pumalit sa Delta bilang dominat coronavirus variant.

Sa ngayon, mayroong 43 kaso ng Omicron ang Pilipinas. RNT/FGDC
