The travel ban to the Philippines from the 35 countries with confirmed cases of the new coronavirus (Covid-19) variant won’t take too long, Malacañang said Monday.

But, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases will have the last say whether the travel ban needs to be extended.

“Meron na tayong bagong health protocols na sinusunod na yung first day, PCR test atsaka yung fifth day, PCR. Pero kinakailangan kumpletuhin pa rin ang 14-day (quarantine),” said Roque.

“So, I would say that is a hopeful signal na baka naman po hindi na masyado pa tatagal ang travel ban sa 35 countries,” he added.

The government earlier extended the travel restrictions through the end of January.

Duterte says gov’t going ‘full-throttle’ on vaccine drive to ensure student safety

By Prince Golez

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday vowed that the government will go “full- throttle” in its mass coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination program to ensure safe return to schools.

Duterte made the statement during the simultaneous inauguration of school buildings at the Gen. Gregorio H. Del Pilar Integrated School and Virginia Ramirez-Cruz High School in Bulakan, Bulacan.

“I assure you that the government is exerting all efforts to go full-throttle in this Covid-19 vaccination program to ensure the safety of students before the resumption of the face-to face-learning,” the Chief Executive said.

In his speech, Duterte also underscored the need for timely completion of government structures and projects and directed all concerned agencies to ensure the least inconvenience to the public during construction and maintain the highest ethical standards.

“Our investment in education infrastructure affirms our continuing commitment to promote the right of the people to quality and accessible education at all levels,” according to him.

“A good education is a valuable gift we can proudly pass on to succeeding generations of Filipinos. Let us join hands in developing the full potential of your youth as bearers of our nation’s sustainable future,” he concluded.
