“Our battle with Covid-19 is not yet done. That is why the DOH strongly encourages everyone to continue doing his/her civic duty to save fellow Filipinos from this unseen enemy. The government cannot do it alone. We need the cooperation of everyone for us to win this fight. Let us not waste the sacrifices and efforts we have made since this pandemic started. Instead, let us contribute to flattening the curve by constantly practicing minimum health standards. Together, we can beat Covid-19,” he said. (PNA)
