The DOH has said the COVID-19 situation was still being monitored in the country.
“Marami pang uncertain na nangyayari sa atin. Na-experience na natin in the past na napababa ang mga kaso but after some time, tumaas pa rin. So we need a longer time to evaluate,” Health Undersecretary Ma. Rosario Vergeire said.
The DOH warned the public against complacency with the easing of restrictions.
The warning came also amid the surge in COVID-19 cases in Germany, which is facing its fourth COVID-19 wave, and Austria, following loosening restrictions that enabled mobility.
