It’s turning out to be a race between vaccination and the Delta coronavirus disease (COVID-19) variant.

As the government reported administering the most number of vaccines in one day, the Delta variant also swiftly spread with the Department of Health (DOH) confirming its presence in nine regions.

Meanwhile, the Lower House wants to look into the credibility of the OCTA Research Group’s “qualifications, methodologies, partnerships and composition”.

These are among the top stories this Wednesday afternoon, August 4, 2021.

Commuters form a long queue to await their turn before boarding an EDSA Bus Carousel at the Kamuning bus stop in Quezon City on Wednesday, August 4, 2021.
