De Lima on COVID-19 surge outside Metro Manila: Exercise utmost care

By Ernie Reyes

MANILA — Opposition Senator Leila M. de Lima expressed alarm over the reported peaking of COVID-19 cases in several regions outside Metro Manila, especially in the Bicol region, which logged its highest daily tally last Jan. 20 since the pandemic began.

De Lima, who hails from Iriga City, reminded Filipinos, regardless of their places of residence, to exercise utmost care, act responsibly and not to lose sight of the fact that the country is still in the middle of the pandemic.

“The surge of COVID-19 cases we are experiencing in Metro Manila is already a cause of concern, but equally alarming is the gradual peaking of cases in several regions outside NCR, including Bicol,” she said.
