Cabinet Secretary and acting Presidential Spokesperson Karlo Nograles said Monday (November 29) that the IATF has agreed to keep Metro Manila and other areas in the country under Alert Level 2 from December 1 to 15.

DESPITE the looming threat of a possibly more transmissible variant of Covid-19, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) has decided to keep the “status quo” for Metro Manila and other areas of the Philippines for now.

Cabinet Secretary and acting Presidential Spokesperson Karlo Nograles said Monday (November 29) that the IATF has agreed to keep Metro Manila and other areas in the country under Alert Level 2 from December 1 to 15.

This, despite reports of the Omicron variant that has been detected in multiple countries since it was first reported in Botswana this month.
