Phl economy to suffer if Delta variant spreads
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine economy will be at the losing end anew once the Delta variant infects more people and prompts the government to impose another round of strict lockdown measures, highlighting the need to expedite COVID-19 vaccination in the country, economists said. The country is facing another threat of COVID-19 case resurgence with the possible spread of the Delta variant, which is now wreaking havoc in neighboring Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam. The Department of Health earlier reported new local cases of the Delta variant, considered as the more dangerous and more transmissible strain of COVID-19.
