EXECUTIVE Secretary Salvador Medialdea has expressed disapproval of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III’S revelation of the 2nd wave of COVID-19 in the Philippines.
According to Medialdea, the country has yet to reach the second wave of COVID-19 infections.
This is contrary to the revelation of the Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III, who said during a Senate hearing earlier today that the second wave of COVID-19 infections in the country is already taking place.
An epidemiology expert, however, explained also on Wednesday that the second wave of COVID-19 infections in the country has already peaked at the end of March this year.
Dr. John Wong explained that the first wave occurred in late January when the country has recorded its first three COVID-19 cases.
