COVID-19 cases rise on easing of restrictions

The recent increases in COVID-19 cases in the country may be linked to the government's decision to ease quarantine restrictions for the sake of economy, according to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año.

“Somehow, ito ang resulta ng pag-open up natin, pag-downgrade ng classification, pagbubukas ng ibang business sectors na kailangan naman,” he said in an interview on CNN-Philippines.

Año said whether or not the total number of COVID-19 cases would increase dramatically boils down to the compliance of the public to the safety and health protocols being implemented amid the pandemic.

“In the coming days, because of our intention to open up the economy, it will really boil down to the individual persons on how they will adhere, comply, obey, with the minimum health standards,” he said.

During lockdowns, Año — a member of the government task force addressing the COVID-19 problem — highlighted that the government was able to improve the testing capacity and health care facilities.

“We can say na we are ready, but the people must cooperate,” he said.

As of Sunday, the total number of cases in the Philippines was at 44,254 with 11,942 recoveries and 1,297 fatalities, according to the DOH.

The new reported cases of 2,434 infections were composed of 1,147 fresh cases  and 1,287 late reported cases.
