Workers’ group: ‘No vax, no ride’ policy is anti-poor, gives car owners free passMANILA, Philippines — The government&039;s "no vaccination, no ride" policy in Metro Manila “discriminates” against the poor and gives car owners a free pass, a worker’s True. This administration is highly and most likely STUPID! Vaccinated person can still get Covid - be asymptomatic and be a carrier/spreader. How can the undercover officials know if vaccine cards are real? How does the public know if the officials are real? While I am all for vaccines and hope people would have more access to them, but this policy seems as unenforceable as catching all traffic offenders.

Isko Moreno: Incentives should be given to those vaccinated, not the unvaxxedManila Mayor Isko Moreno reiterated that persons who go out of their way to get fully vaccinated with the added booster shots should be the ones rewarded by government and not those who refuse to get inoculated. Sino bang nagsabi na bigyan ng incentive yung mga ayaw magpabakuna? Wala namang ganung balita. Weird ka.

On Friday, January 14, the Philippines recorded – the highest single-day tally since the pandemic began. Friday was also when the national government extended the Alert Level 3 status on Metro Manila, Cavite, Baguio City, and 80 other areas until the end of January. Metrics In a separate interview on Saturday, acting presidential spokesperson and Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles explained that despite the alarming case counts, the government will not raise the alert level to 4 because healthcare capacity metrics are still within Alert Level 3. “Passengers who tested [positive], and who will be tested positive in the aforesaid testing shall not be permitted to ride the trains. In deciding alert levels, the government looks at the two-week growth rate, the average daily attack rate, and the total bed utilization. To merit Alert Level 4, Nograles said that total bed utilization needs to reach 71%, and the figure in Metro Manila is at around 60% as of January 13. “Has the DOTr realized the implications of their no vax, no ride policy? If not, it is because they do not seek to dialogue with workers and commuters’ organizations and prefer to unilaterally impose discriminatory policies,” Magtubo said.

Meanwhile, intensive care unit utilization is at 55%. FEATURED STORIES.

But as the new surge struck the country, the Octa Research group of experts found that almost one in two tests performed in the capital region turned out positive.
