Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairperson Benhur Abalos on Monday said he appealed to reassess the National Capital Region after a week and place it under Alert Level 2 from Alert Level 3, according to a report by GMA News.

In a radio interview, Abalos said the Department of Health designates the alert levels in concerned areas after its evaluation on their two-week data, which include their daily attack rate of COVID-19 cases.

Abalos said Metro Manila missed had 7.4% daily attack rate, but the requirement percentage to be placed under Alert Level 2 is 7%, which means the region missed by 0.4%.

“Ang dinudulog ko nga if it’s possible, imbes na two weeks, maghintay ng two weeks, baka in one week mag-7% baka lang pupuwede i-alert level 2 na once we attain that,” he said.

Despite the anticipation of some officials of lower alert level, the government extended the Alert Level 3 classification in the NCR for the first two weeks of November.

Under Alert Level 3, several establishments — including restaurants, gyms, cinemas and movie houses — will be allowed to operate at 30% indoor venue capacity only for fully vaccinated individuals and 50% outdoor venue capacity, provided that all employees are fully vaccinated.

For Alert Level 2, several establishments will be allowed to operate indoors at 50% capacity with additional 10% capacity if they have a safety seal. For outdoors, they will be allowed at 70%.
