From Jose C. Laurel V, Ambassador of the Republic of the Philippines to Japan.

I refer to the article "China falls from top spot in Nikkei COVID recovery ranking" published online on Oct. 6 and wish to provide further context on the infection management and vaccination situation in the Philippines. I hope that this would enable Nikkei Asia and its readers to have a more comprehensive picture of the Philippine government's COVID-19 response, especially since many of the underlying metrics for the Philippines have already favorably shifted.
