マニラ ECQ終了までに45%の住民にワクチン接種を目標

マニラ首都圏では、8月6日から20日まで、4段階のロックダウンのうち最も厳しいレベルであるECQが実施されます。当局は、コロナウイルスの感染が急増する恐れがあるため、そのECQ終了までにマニラ首都圏の人口1,300万人のうち45%にワクチンを接種することを目標としていると発表しました。

マニラ首都圏開発庁(MMDA)のベンハー・アバロス長官によれば、マニラ首都圏ではすでに820万人分のワクチンが接種されており、ECQ期間中にはさらに250万人分のワクチンが接種される見込みです。また内務省の発表によると、首都圏では1日に約25万回の接種が可能だといいます。アバロス氏は、マニラ地域ではこのままいけばECQの終わりには人口の45%に2回目のワクチンを接種できるようになると期待していると述べています。ECQ期間中も公共交通機関は運行され、ワクチン接種をサポートするとのことです。

マニラでワクチン接種が進めば国全体の復興に繋がります。目標達成を願います。

Metro Manila targets 45 percent of residents vaccinated vs COVID by end of ECQ

Authorities aim to vaccinate 45 percent of Metro Manila’s 13 million people against COVID-19 by the end of its upcoming 2-week lockdown meant to contain a potential surge of coronavirus infections, an official said on Tuesday.

Metro Manila will be under the strictest of 4 lockdown levels, the. enhanced community quarantine, from Aug. 6 to 20.

The region has administered some 8.2 million COVID-19 shots, and is expected to receive 2.5 million more vaccine doses during the ECQ, said Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chairman Benhur Abalos.

The capital region can administer around 250,000 shots a day, the interior department said over the weekend.

“Dito po sa Kalakhang Maynila, kung ‘yan po ay tuloy-tuloy, sana po at the end of this, we will be able to vaccinate 45 percent of our population na 2 na po ang dosage,” Abalos said in a televised public briefing.

(Here in the Greater Manila area, if that continues, we hope that at the end of this ECQ, we will be able to vaccinate 45 percent of our population with 2 doses.)

“Kung mangyayari pong protektado ang Metro Manila, mapoproteksyunan na rin po natin ang buong bansa,” he added.
(If Metro Manila is protected, we can protect the whole country.)

Residents will be allowed to go out of their homes to join night vaccinations despite the 8 PM to 4 AM curfew starting Aug. 6, said Abalos.

Public transport will continue to operate during the ECQ to serve those scheduled to get COVID-19 shots, among others, he said.

Authorities this Tuesday will finalize other ECQ guidelines, including those for cash aid distribution, Abalos said.
