MANILA, Philippines — The latest Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey on the quality of life of Filipinos proves that the government’s pandemic response is working, Malacañang said Friday.

“We view this improvement [as] incontrovertible proof that the current government’s pandemic response is working, where we put [a] premium on both health and the economy,” he said in a statement.

Andanar said the result reaffirms that the country is on its way to full economic recovery.


“It is likewise a reaffirmation that we are now on our way to [the] full economic recovery while maintaining our vigilance with the new COVID-19 variants,” he said.
