THE government has warned the public of the possible second wave of COVID-19 in the country if they do not comply with policies and ‘new normal’ in case the lockdown is removed.
According to Interior Secretary Eduardo Año, they do not want the Philippines to be compared to other countries that had had new COVID-19 cases after the lockdown was removed.
Año emphasized that it is important for the public to maintain attitudes or practices during the enhanced community quarantine and general community quarantine such as social distancing, hand washing, and the wearing of face mask as it depends on following these practices whether or not there will be a second wave of the virus.
Año exemplifies Singapore when the number of COVID-19 cases suddenly rose after the lockdown was lifted.
