WE ARE PREPARING FOR THE DELTA VARIANT

Nagpahayag  ng COVID-19 update si Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong sa ginanap na “Ugnayan” kaninang 3 PM (Miyekules) na ayon sa kanyang pahayag, “nakatulong ng malaki yun biglaan paghihigpit sa ating border at ayon sa napag usapan namin sa meeting ng management committee ay lumalabas na nasa range tayo ng 25 to 37 cases per day, ngunit masu-sustain ito for the next two weeks just because looking at the mobility ground, looking at the circumstances na nangyayari sa ating kapaligiran including mga civilization ngayon sa ating mga kapitbahay, most probably the next two weeks from now makikita na natin ang pagtaas ng mga kaso, and this will probably will be given by Delta variant”

“Right now ang prominent variant dito sa Baguio is Alpha from UK and Beta from Brazil. In fact, according to the PGC, the total number of Alpha and Beta variants in Baguio is 136, 70 percent are Alpha variants and 30 percent are Beta variants. Itong dalawang variant na ito were diverse were the cause of a surge in April noong napakataas na umabot ang active cases sa 1,600 plus, ngayon ang active cases natin ay nasa range ng 360 as of today,”

“If you think na 136 officially ang Alpha and Beta variant dito, hindi totoo yan, hindi lang 136, looking at our analytical tools sa mga ginamit namin na mga technology to analyze yun Alpha, Beta variant dito, hindi lang 136, most probably we have thousands of Alpha and Beta cases here in Baguio,”

“Naniniwala ako na ang pinaka dominant variants dito sa Baguio ay Alpha at Beta lang, halos kaunti na lang ang original version, sorry to say this some of you argued with me but, I’m concerned and looking with the analytical tools with that affected of thousands of Alpha and Beta variant in the City of Baguio, kaya mag ingat tayo lahat,”

Ang ginagawa namin ay action plan more than two months ago and we are preventing it, we are preparing for the Delta variant more than two months preparing for this.”  Mario Oclaman /FNS
