The Philippines is slowly but surely fighting Covid-19. As of writing, the total number of cases is almost 1.5 million with an average of 3,000 to 5,000 new cases per day.
Compared to the situation earlier this year, the country has seen substantial progress with its fight against this deadly virus that has devastated the world. But even so, we still have a long way to go.

Compare to other countries, the vaccination program in the country is still slow. As of July 11, 2021, about 9.7 million people already received the first of two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in the Philippines. In contrast, roughly 3.5 million already received both doses of the vaccine.
The vaccination program started in March and LGUs in Metro Manila have been conducting simultaneous vaccination for the different sectors.
A1 refers to medical front-liners
A2 to senior citizens,
A3 covers persons with comorbidities
A4 refers to essential workers who need to go outside their homes
A5 refers to indigent citizens
