(We have to expect this coming June or July that we might have another peak or surge.)

Galvez said different COVID-19 variants now in the Philippines and the efficacy of the vaccine would be determined six to nine months after the vaccination started.

“Hindi pa po tapos ang COVID [crisis]. Nakita po natin, there is a wrong notion na COVID is already finished in some other countries. It can reappear anytime,” he said.
