As the government is monitoring the threat of the Omicron coronavirus variant, the DOH reminded the public not to be complacent.

“Huwag maging kampante dahil sa mababang kaso ng COVID-19 na naitatala araw-araw. Alalahanin na ang COVID-19 ay nasa ating paligid lamang (Don’t be complacent just because of the low number of COVID-19 cases that are recorded every day. Remember that COVID-19 is still around us),” the DOH said.

“Kaya ugaliing sumunod sa minimum public health standards at makiisa sa darating na Bayanihan, Bakunahan upang makaiwas mula sa COVID-19. Kasabay nito ang ating pagiging alisto sa mga sintomas (Make it a habit to adhere to the minimum public health standards and join the upcoming ‘Bayanihan, Bakunahan’ to avoid COVID-19. At the same time, we have to be alert to the symptoms of this disease),” it added.
