The Philippines is moving swiftly in preventing the entry of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) variant from South Africa, which was said to be more transmissible and more resistant to existing vaccines. Flights from seven south African nations were promptly suspended to address this concern.

And to boost the country’s inoculation capabilities, nearly half a million doses of Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines arrived on Friday, November 26, 2021.

Meanwhile, a lucky solo bettor won an astounding P378.7 million in the Ultra Lotto, while the traditional Traslacion procession in January next year will be cancelled for the second straight year.

These are the top stories this Saturday morning, November 27, 2021.
