Health secretary Francisco Duque III says the MECQ status of NCR Plus bubble should be extended to one to two weeks more due to the criticality of ICU cases being reported.
Duque III should be asked— what are you trying to do with managing this virus infection? What are the findings of your tracking team? What is your overall vaccination program? What is the status of vaccination coverage?
While we empathize with the health secretary, Duque should be mindful of informing the public not just on mortality rates but mores on preventive care. The DOH has always been about palliative care when the best really is to give information to the public on how to prevent catching this virus.
