A stricter Alert Level 2 could be reinstated in Metro Manila if cases of Covid-19 continue to increase, a health official said Monday.
“The possibility would always be there ‘pag nag tuloy-tuloy po ang mga kaso syempre makakakita tayo ng patuloy na pagtaas at baka ‘yung admissions natin sa ospital ay tumaas.,” Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said in a radio interview.
The nation’s capital is under Alert Level 1 until June 15.
On Sunday, the Department of Health reported 308 new cases of the disease, the highest tally of new cases recorded since April 20.
But Vergeire stressed that mild and asymptomatic cases should be “acceptable.”
“Ang pinakaimportante, hindi pa natin nakikitang tumataas ang severe and critical na mga kaso at hindi pa din nagkakaroon ng problema sa ating mga ospital by observing kung meron man increase of admission,” she said.
Alert Level 2 is raised in areas with low case transmission, low health care utilization, low case counts but increasing, or low case counts and decreasing but the total bed and intensive care unit occupancy rate is increasing.
