MB Daily News Update December 2

The flatlining of new daily coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases continues even as the Philippines braces for the possible impact of the mysterious Omicron variant.

On Thursday, the country logged its ninth straight day with fewer than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases. It is a very encouraging sign for health authorities, who had to contend with fresh daily cases reaching over 20,000 a day only last September due to the emergence of the Delta variant.

But the government isn’t taking any chances; it has decided to extend it’s ongoing national vaccination campaign until Friday in order to get as many Filipinos inoculated from COVID-19 as possible.

The vaccination drive extension will also allow authorities to hit their target of administering nine million jabs.
