The Department of Health cannot yet confirm that the Philippines has flattened its COVID-19 pandemic curve.

On Monday, President Rodrigo Duterte said the country had flattened the pandemic curve, lauding the public for following health protocols imposed by the government.

However, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said authorities still need to conduct the further study as the objective of flattening of the curve is to “spread the increase of the number of new cases over a longer period of time” to avoid overwhelming the healthcare system’s capacity.

“Titingnan ho natin, basta itutuloy natin ang strategies na ginagawa natin ngayon but we cannot really confirm yet na ito na po talaga ang sinasabing flattening of the curve,” Vergeire said.
