Hinimok ni Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso nitong Lunes, Nob. 29, ang mga ospital sa bansa na maghanda para sa bagong COVID-19 variant na Omicron.
“We urge our people to have themselves vaccinated immediately in preparation for the new Omicron variant. We have to prepare since Omicron could be worse than Delta. We should have sufficient hospital beds and medicines,” ani Domagoso.
“Kailangang lalong pabilisin ang vaccination, including opening booster shots for everyone na naka- six months na after their second dose,” dagdag pa niya.
Pinuri ni Domagoso ang national government sa pagsasagawa ng three-day national vaccination drive na nagsimula ngayong Lunes at tatagal hanggang Disyembre 1.
“We, in the City of Manila, fully support the three-day national vaccination drive launched by the Duterte administration as this will be a big boost to the current vaccination efforts by local government units,” ayon sa alkalde.
“We also laud the gains we have achieved in bringing down cases of COVID-19 for the past months and we must work together to fight this new variant,” aniya pa.
Sinabi rin ni Domagoso na bukas ang Maynila sa mga coronavirus patient sa labas ng Maynila.
“Hangga’t kaya ng supply namin, we can give anti-COVID medicines such as Remdesivir, Tocilizumab and Molnupiravir to patients needing those life-saving drugs sa mga lalawigan ng Central Luzon at Southern Tagalog. We did it before, we will do it again pag lumala ulit ang COVID situation natin.
