The Omicron coronavirus disease (COVID-19) variant is not yet in the Philippines, which detected another low of 500 new infections on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

This, as the Department of Health (DOH) reported that over five million persons were vaccinated in the National Vaccination Days, as of last count.

And to compliment these efforts, the vaccines just kept coming with over one million Pfizer vaccines arriving from the United States which were procured by the government. But the bad news is hundreds of AstraZeneca vaccines were reported to have been wasted after these were not used before their expiration date.

Another big story was the death of former policeman Joel M. Nuesca, the convicted killer of a mother and her son in Tarlac nearly a year ago. He reportedly collapsed while making his way to his cell at the National Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa, and never regained consciousness.

These are among our top stories this Thursday morning, December 2, 2021.
