National Action Plan on COVID-19 Chief implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez,Jr. stated on June 29 that the country has improved in its response to the COVID-19 pandemic situation after implementing community quarantine for three months.

Galvez noted that there are also under reported cases of COVID-19 recoveries, more or less 40 to 50 percent, which indicates a higher rate of improvement on the country’s health crisis response.

As the government prepares for the second phase of the national action plan, Galvez said there has also been an ongoing “balancing act” between the national and the local governments regarding the COVID-19 response.
