Cabinet Secretary and acting Presidential Spokesperson Karlo Nograles said in the Presidential press briefing last January 14 that the public shouldn’t be complacent since Omicron is dangerous for the unvaccinated.

Likewise, Nograles clarified that accounts of the variant only causing mild symptoms were only for the fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Ganito po inilarawan ng World Health Organization ang Omicron: ‘Dangerous especially for the unvaccinated,’ kaya huwag po tayong magpakakampante,” Nograles said. “Ang obserbasyon na hindi malala ang sintomas o iyong sinasabi iyong sakit na dulot ng Omicron kung ikukumpara sa Delta variant ay applicable lamang po sa mga fully vaccinated.

The acting Palace spokesman made the statement as the government continued to address the Omicron variant that possibly fueled the recent spike in the number of coronavirus cases in the Philippines.

Nograles also reminded the public to continue following health protocols and to get vaccinated.

Meanwhile, Nograles explained that Metro Manila will be staying under Alert Level 3 until the end of the month despite the rising number of coronavirus cases because the region didn’t meet the required bed utilization rate.

According to Nograles, Metro Manila will only be escalated to Alert Level 4 if its bed utilization rate will reach over 70%.

Nograles also said that the government was managing the country’s healthcare utilization rate by ensuring that only those who were in critical need, who were severe COVID-19 cases, those who were vulnerable, and those who belong in the A2 and A3 categories were in the hospitals.
