Vergeire also said that they’re asking the help of the World Health Organization by submitting to the WHO so that they could also tell them if those were really the mutation that would cause harm to the public.

Ang gagawin po natin, isusumite po natin sa GSAID, which is an international system, ito pong ating mga detection, and also to WHO, so that they can better classify what type of variant are these. That’s why we want to make sure, that’s why we are asking the help of WHO by submitting to them so that they can also tell us if these are really the mutation that will cause harm to our public,” Vergeire said.

Vergeire’s statement came after the DOH Central Visayas (DOH7) previously announced that the Philippine Genome Center (PGC) had detected two coronavirus “variants of concern” in samples from Cebu City.
