Citing the continuing downward trend in new cases of coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) has urged Presidential Entrepreneurship Advisor Joey Concepcion to further lower the alert in the National Capital Region (NCR) , as this would lead to additional capacity for more customers, “said Concepcion in a statement on Thursday, October 28th.

The N CR – the country’s commercial center – is currently on Alert Level 3, but the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) is poised to recommend a new alert classification under the Alert System (ALS.) This weekend.

On Wednesday, Concepcion met with various representatives from companies such as restaurants, salons, spas, cinemas, gyms, amusement parks, hotels and airlines. For business owners, easing the alert level in NCR would allow them to make up for their losses and reinstate the people who lost their jobs due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

Presented during the meeting the OCTA Research Group data showing the decline in the number of COVID-19 cases not only in Metro Manila but also in other parts of the country.

Metro Manila is currently classified as a “low risk” Until October 26th, only 953 cases per day were registered for an average of seven days. The COVID-19 reproductive rate was 0.52 percent while the incidence rate was only 6.73 percent per 100,000.

The region also recorded a positivity rate of 6 percent while health care utilization was 35 percent. Based on current trends, OCTA Research expects cases to drop to less than 2,000 per day by the end of November.

“By the end of November we expect less than 2,000 cases per day across the country, we hope we will this trend could continue and could possibly be fewer than 1,000 cases per day by December. There is of course no guarantee because these are only projections; but these are possibilities, these are real possibilities, ”said OCTA Research Fellow Dr. Guido David.

The NCR is currently on alert through October 31st. This means that indoor businesses such as restaurants and personal care services, regardless of vaccination status, have 30 percent capacity for fully vaccinated individuals and 50 percent outdoor capacity May be operated provided that all employees of the operations are fully vaccinated.

When Metro Manila is placed under alert level 2 from next month, indoor facilities may operate with 50 percent indoor capacity, in addition to the 20 percent additional Capacity, as the regions now have a vaccination rate of more than 70 percent.

Additionally, Go Negosyo founder Concepcion said that an indoor business will get an additional 10 percent if it bears a security seal, bringing the total capacity to 80 percent elevated. Outdoor venues can be 70 percent full regardless of customer vaccination status.

“This is certainly good news for companies as they are getting closer to their ultimate goal of working at full capacity,” the palace official said / p> “An increase in capacity would require additional manpower, which is also a welcome development for those who have temporarily lost their jobs or who are currently working on rotating shifts to give everyone a chance to earn something. Now they have the opportunity to make a living for their families, too, ”he added.

During the meeting, representatives from various business sectors also expressed their support for Concepcion’s call for a lower alert in NCR to increase operational capacity can.

“We support the call for more capacities. We have also observed that [ALS] appears to be boosting consumer confidence, “said RestoPH President Eric Teng.

Meanwhile, the Cinema Exhibitors Association of the Philippines (CEAP), represented by Charmaine Bauzon, said,” We are very excited that we are allowed to reopen at alert level 3 and that the security seal and the vaccination incentive also apply to us. ”

Dr. Dan Lachica, President of the Semiconductor and Electronics Industry in the Philippines, Inc. (SEIPI), said he appreciated the data analysis from OCTA Research, adding that they are also helping lower the alert levels in Metro Manila.

David Charlton of David’s Salon emphasized the urgency of opening stores. “We’ve been closed for so long and our employees haven’t earned for months,” he said.

On the other hand, the fitness sector appealed to the government to allow small group courses under alert 3 or 2 to ensure that the gyms Have enough space to maintain social distance between attendees.

Mario Mamon, President of Enchanted Kingdom, said the amusement and theme park industry is grateful to the Department of Commerce and the Department of Tourism for providing clear guidelines to enable them to do so would set strategies based on alert levels.

“Now that the numbers are falling, we hope the government will respond positively to our proposal to move to alert level 2 so that the economy and its workers all have a happy time Have Christmas, ”said Mamon.
