The Department of Health on Saturday emphasized that it is too early to tell if we are winning the fight against COVID-19. The “fight is far from over” so there is no certainty about the dire situation the country is facing.

“Wala namang certain sa ngayon. We all know that the situation is really evolving. Hindi rin natin masabi kung tayo ay nananalo na o hindi dahil sa tingin namin matagal pa ang laban natin,” Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire told ABS-CBN’s Teleradyo.

[There is nothing certain at the moment. We all know that the situation is really evolving. We cannot tell yet if we are winning or not because we believe that the fight is far from over.]

Despite this, Vergeire noted that the government’s efforts have brought COVID-19 under control.

“Kahit sabihin natin na tumataas talaga ang kaso, hindi natin ‘yan ikakaila, pero nandiyan na ang kapasidad ng ating health system para tayo ay makaagapay kung sakaling tayo’y magkakaroon ng tuloy-tuloy na pagtaas ng kaso,” she said.

[Even if we say that the cases continue to increase, we don’t deny that, but the capacity of our health system is still there to prop up the continued surging of cases.]
