Authorities are thinking of shifting the vaccination rollout to a higher gear with the scrapping of all priority lists in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) inoculation; eight other areas join Metro Manila in registering low reproduction numbers; and more hospitals will soon start administering vaccination on minors.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has also called on witnesses to come forward to buttress the cases against policemen alleged to have committed abuses in the government’s drug war.

And in another indication that things could be starting to go back to normal, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) reported that traffic on EDSA is already nearing pre-pandemic levels.

These are among the top stories this Wednesday afternoon, October 20, 2021.
