SILANG, Cavite — Provincial Governor Juanito Victor ‘Jonvic’ Remulla Jr warned his continuents on the Delta variant following the infographic summary in the province from July 17 to 21, 2021
According to experts from, De La Salle University Health and Science Institute, the Delta variant is much contagious than the other variants.
“Kung kayo ay fully vaccinated na, wala na sana dapat ipangamba. Ang bakuna ay sapat para bigyan ng protekson ang katawan (antibodies) na siyang lalaban sa panganib na dala ng high viral load.” Remulla said
“Ngunit utik-utik pa rin ang bilang ng mga bakunado sa Cavite. Makupad ang vaccine supply mula sa DOH. Ang lalawigan ay naglagay rin ng sariling order sa NOVAVAX na inaasahang parating nitong end-August to mid-September.” Remulla added
“Hindi natin alam o masabi kung ang new high load strain na ito ay dala ng tinatawag na Delta variant. Wala pong kapasidad ang Cavite para ma-identify ito. Kaya’t dapat ay lalo po tayong mag-ingat at malayo pa ang kalbaryo nating lahat. Kapag mataas ang viral load ay mas malubha ang epekto ng COVID-19. Mas madaling makahawa at mabilis ring kumalat.” Remulla stressed.
