The Department of Health (DOH) said that there is no uptick of Covid-19 infections in the National Capital Region (NCR) as well as in over 30 areas in the country under Alert Level 1. 

“At present, we have not seen any increase in Covid-19 cases since we have implemented Alert Level 1 in several areas in the country,” Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said Tuesday.

She also assured the public that the government is continuously observing the mobility of people to make sure that minimum health protocols are being followed. 

“Since the implementation of Alert Level 1, an increase in the mobility of people has been expected given that employers have implemented 100% workforce capacity, and establishments can now operate in their full capacities as well,” Vergeire said.

“The government strictly monitors the mobility of the public with incessant reminders on adherence to minimum public health standards as well as the national vaccination drive for those eligible to get inoculated,” she added.

From March 1 to 15, 2022, the NCR and 38 more areas across the country are under Alert Level 1, the government’s most relaxed alert level for the pandemic. Ronald Espartinez
