In an April 6, 2022 article published in GMA News Online, Giselle Ombar reported the Philippines is already seeing signs of shifting from a pandemic to an endemic state.
According to the report, during a Laging Handa briefing, Dr. Edsel Salvana, an infectious disease expert, explained the transition to an endemic situation is not quick as it undergoes a gradual process. However, with the low healthcare utilization rate and new daily COVID-19 cases recorded, the country might already move forward toward the endemic state. [See What does endemic COVID look like?]
Also, Salvana reminded it is still vital for the public to remain vigilant and continue observing the minimum public health standards. “Our safeguards are in place. I hope people don’t get tired of using masks and take their booster shots to have additional layers of protection.” [Translated from Filipino.] [See Is it time for the Philippines to lift its mask mandate?; COVID Vaccines Efficacy Wanes Thus Public is Encouraged to Get Booster Shots.]
Editor’s Note: This is another indication that experts in the Philippines are echoing what is being mandated by US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and what Dr. Anthony Fauci says.

We may have already reached the endemic stage in early 2021, but we were told too early to celebrate because only the covid vaccine can end the pandemic. [See DOH Endemic Definition: Cases are Manageable and More Vaccinated Individuals]. What propels the number is the RT-PCR test results we know cannot determine flu from covid; why do we keep on believing testing results and scurry to hide when mainstream media tells us there’s another surge and the hospitals are inundated?

For two years, are we still buying the fear-mongers narrative that covid is deadly? See the report from Corona in Zahlenhttps://www.corona-in-zahlen.de/weltweit/, a German site that also records Covid cases and deaths, as well as official vaccination and Covid test numbers. Corona in Zahlen reports less than 50,000 deaths for 200 of the 222 countries tracked. Is there a pandemic in its original definition relating to the severity and high mortality? [See Why the WHO cannot be trusted; Epidemiologist Tom Jefferson: A whole industry is waiting for a pandemic.]
It would be a whole new landscape if mainstream media had only reported on the vast number of countries barely hit with Covid-19 deaths over the last two years instead of reporting recorded Covid cases.
Also, some countries are already reassessing the covid deaths, proving that covid deaths are over-counted. [See Governments now admitting: COVID deaths skewed by people who died of other causes; John Ioannidis: COVID Deaths Massively Over-counted] Also, note that Covid only deaths are proving to be much smaller than official numbers as data in countries like Australia [See video below]; New Zealandhttps://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/463064/ministry-announces-change-to-reporting-of-covid-19-related-deaths, the UKhttps://bit.ly/37sH9tGUKONSdataFOIAofficialcoviddeaths and the USA [see CDC removes tens of thousands of deaths “accidentally” attributed to COVID].
See the video below, the truth on Australia’s covid death count.
Now, with the covid truths coming out, what would be the stance of the Philippine government, especially if there’s an audit to be conducted on the covid deaths, vaccination status of those hospitalized with covid, and testing only the symptomatic?
