An alliance of healthcare workers appealed to the Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) to reject the reduction of the physical distancing standard in public transport amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Carmela Kasala of Healthcare Professionals Alliance Against COVID-19 (HPAAC) said the reduction could cause an increase in COVID-19 cases.

“Hindi talaga sang-ayon ang pangkat ng HPAAC dIyan sa pinaplanong ‘yan. Malamang, tataas na naman ang cases ng COVID,” Kasala said.

“Baka iniisip ng mga tao na pawala na ang virus na ‘to at pababa na ‘yung mga numbers,” she added.

According to Kasala, the group will have a meeting with the IATF to discuss the matter on Tuesday. She said they would present a model to show the possible impact of the reduction in the number of cases and death rates.
