SEN. Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go on Friday called on Filipinos to remain vigilant against Covid-19 in view of rising cases in the country, but warned against unnecessary panic.

Go stressed that discipline and cooperation are key to overcoming the crisis.

“We should remain vigilant as we continue to battle Covid-19. Let us not be confident. Discipline and cooperation are needed in order to overcome this crisis,” Go, chairman of the Senate health and demography committee said in English and Filipino.

“However, I also urge everyone not to panic and instead focus on religiously complying with our health protocols and taking care of one’s health,” he added.

The Department of Health (DoH) reported 34,021 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday. This surpassed the earlier record-high 33,169 new cases logged on January 10.

Go reiterated his appeal to the public to continue adhering to the government health and quarantine protocols and not to gamble with the health of their fellow Filipinos, especially amid the Omicron variant.

“Public health is the responsibility of all of us and not only of the government, let us do our part so we could fully overcome the pandemic,” said Go.

He reminded the public to take care of one’s health and take necessary precautions in order not to add burden to others in the community.

“Be a part of the solution instead of panicking. Trust and follow the guideline. This is not the time to blame or malign others. This is the time for us to unite and help one another,” he reiterated.

Meanwhile, the senator renewed his appeal to qualified Filipinos to get inoculated against the virus as soon as possible and urged those eligible to get their booster shots.

As of January 12, the government has administered more than 116 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines. Some 53.9 million Filipinos are fully vaccinated while almost 58.3 million have received their first dose. More than 4.1 million have obtained their booster shots.

The senator asked for the continued cooperation and discipline among Filipinos to stem the current surge in infections, telling them that the country cannot afford to go on a nationwide lockdown again.
