A year into the coronavirus pandemic, while many countries are seeing an improvement in their daily lives, the Philippines finds itself in a worse situation than before.

The daily number of new cases in the past week hit an all-time high, prompting the government to place the National Capital Region and nearby provinces in a “bubble.”

On Thursday, March 25, the Newsbreak team will discuss what’s happening in the Philippines, what’s lacking in government’s response, and what the pandemic’s overall impact on the country has been.

The discussion with Rappler editor at large Marites Vitug and multimedia reporters Sofia Tomacruz, Rambo Talabong, and Ralf Rivas will be moderated by Newsbreak Chats host and multimedia reporter Camille Elemia.
