TOKYO, Japan — North Korea has notified Japan of a plan..
All mayors in Metro Manila voted to deescalate the region to Alert Level 1 starting this month, Metro Manila Council (MMC) chair Edwin Olivarez confirmed.
The mayors met on Tuesday to discuss their recommendation which will be forwarded to the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the final decision.
MMC’s recommendation comes as the positivity rate in the capital region went below 4.9 percent, which is lower than the 5 percent recommendation of the World Health Organization (WHO).
This is the first time the positivity rate in Metro Manila dropped below 5 percent since December, OCTA research fellow Dr. Guido David said. Healthcare utilization and intensive care unit (ICU) bed usage are also low.
Metro Manila is currently under Alert Level 2 until the end of February.
