Citing government data, Toby Tiangco said there are more children catching COVID-19 amid the more transmissible Omicron variant.

The Navotas mayor said this should be among the reasons for parents to agree to vaccinate their kids from the virus, just as the jabs for kids aged 5-11 are about to be administered.

“Ayon sa tala ng DOH, mas marami ang bilang ng mga batang nagkaroon ng COVID-19 nang dumating ang Omicron kaysa noong panahon ng Delta variant. Malaki daw ang posibilidad na mas marami pa ang bilang kaysa sa nasa record dahil hindi naman lahat ay sumailalim sa swab testing,” the politiko said.

“Sa bawat bagong variant ng COVID-19 na dumarating, tumataas din ang peligro sa ating mga anak,” he added.
