Vice President Leni Robredo edged out former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos at the end of the first staging of the Manila Bulletin’s presidential survey that was held from Oct. 15 to Oct. 17. Just a slim .5 percent separated them.

Authorities also said they were eyeing 144,000 minors aged 12 to 17 years old in the pilot pediatric vaccination against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), even as the Department of Health (DOH) reported that Region 9 was the lone region in the country to remain at high-risk for the coronavirus.

These are among the top stories this Tuesday morning, October 19, 2021.
