‘Hindi pa po natin na-flatten ang curve’—Palace regarding COVID-19

Dr. Edsel Salvana previously stated that low numbers of cases per day seem to indicate flattening the curve.

  • The Palace clarified that the Philippines is not yet flattening the curve as of now.

The Palace debunked the reports that the Philippines is already flattening the curve when it comes to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.

In a recent virtual press briefing, returning Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque stated that even though it is almost a week away from the supposed lifting of the enhanced community quarantine, we have not yet flattened the curve.

“Sa available data po natin and April 30 is only one week away, ngayon po, sa ngayon po hindi pa po natin naflatten ang curve,” he said.

This is in contrast to Dr. Edsel Salvana’s previous tweet that the recent number of cases each day seem to “indicate” flattening the curve of COVID-19.

“158 new cases. That’s higher than yesterday’s 76 cases but lower than the March 31 peak of 538 cases. This really seems to indicate flattening. This is encouraging and points to a real effect of ECQ. Extension is an option, but the hardest hit will need a lot of support,” he wrote.

In a tweet on April 9, Salvana stated that the curve is “relatively flat”.

In another tweet, he stated that “ECQ is working”.

The Philippines has 5,878 confirmed COVID-19 cases, 387 deaths, and 487 recoveries as of this writing.
