Paliwanag ni Diokno, papunta na ang bansa sa endemic.
“I think no country now, except China, will go into general lockdowns. I think we have now graduated from being pandemic to endemic,” ani Diokno.
“We have to live with the virus. Most of us are vaccinated anyway, some of us even have boosters. In fact, that (vaccination) is also key to the 100 percent opening or face-to-face opening of classes. The plan is, it will start opening up by August and then 100 percent by November,” dagdag pa niya.
Noong Miyerkoles, sinabi ng Department of Health (DOH) na ang Cordillera, Central Luzon, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal at Quezon), Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon at Palawan) at Western Visayas regions ay mayroon ding positivity rates sa itaas ng 5 porsiyentong threshold na itinakda ng World Health Organization.
