The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Wednesday called on the local government units (LGUs) to remain vigilant to sustain the gains they achieved in controlling the spread of the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19).

DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año issued the call after the Department of Health , in its official findings, said that the country is beginning to flatten the curve or showing marked improvement in preventing the spread of the virus.

“Sustained round the clock operations by implementing stringent health and public safety measures are the key to win the war against the COVID-19 virus. Keep your respective areas of jurisdictions safe and secure at all times, never letting your guards down until we have discovered the vaccine for this virus for only then can we be assured of our victory,” he added.

Although the rise in cases and deaths started fast, Wong said the enhanced community quarantine has significantly slowed down the speed of transmission “hence flattening the curve.’’ Wong said the country generally has a case doubling time of 4.6 days, which indicated that the cases double almost every four to five days.

The Philippines registered a 10 percent test positivity rate in early May or 13,655 persons tested positive from the total 136,169 persons tested from 17 percent in early April, or 4,144 persons tested positive out of 24,755 unique individuals who were tested.
