If not contained, Covid-19 cases in Philippines may peak at 75,000 in 3 months

-

Health experts have predicted that if coronavirus is not properly well handled in the Philippines, 75,000 people will be infected in the next three months.

The estimate was revealed by Health Undresecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, citing data from the Department of Health, World Health Organization and Filipino epidemiologists.

“In two to three months, it can reach that peak kung saan 75,000 ang pwedeng magka infection. Pero we can flatten this curve, meaning kaya natin pigilan ang ganitong numero… if only we can implement stringent measures tulad ng social distancing,” Vergeire said.

Currently, the Philippines has 193 confimed Covid-19 cases with 14 deaths and 7 recoveries.

“Ito po ay nakuha natin base po sa statistics na meron tayo ngayon among all cases across the globe. Sinasabi po na pwedeng magkaroon gn reproductive rate ang virus na one person (who) can transmit to two persons in just one sitting,” she further explained.
