This is further down from 399 areas under granular lockdown recorded on Nov. 13.

“Ibig sabihin nito ay epektibo ang ginagawa nating alert level system at patuloy na bumababa ang kaso ng ating COVID-19,” Año said.

(This means the alert level system we are implementing is effective and the number of COVID-19 cases are going down.)

The Department of Health has classified the Philippines under minimal risk for COVID-19 with Metro Manila at low risk classification.

During the briefing, Duterte said he is seeing “better days ahead” as the COVID-19 situation in the country continues to improve, citing the downward trend of cases of the severe respiratory illness.
