Just when things looked like the country’s coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination rollout was hitting a wall, more than three million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine have arrived to breathe life back to stunted inoculation efforts. This development complements reports that the average daily cases nationwide and in Metro Manila are on a downward trend.

Meanwhile, the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) could be headed for a major squabble when a group of party leaders allied with Senator Manny Pacquiao expelled some officials closely identified with President Duterte.

Then there is also the interesting story about how octogenarian Education Secretary Leonor Briones stood up to a global institution like the World Bank, demanding its apology for a disparaging report on Philippine education, and getting what she asked for.

These are among the top stories this Saturday morning, July 10, 2021.

An additional 2.028 million doses of AstraZeneca coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA)Terminal 3 in Pasay City on Friday, July 9, 2021, as part of the World Health Organization (WHO) COVAX facility. A day earlier, the Philippines received more than one million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines from the Japanese government. (Photo from the National Task Force against COVID-19)
