On a day when the number of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases went down substantially anew, the OCTA Research Group came out with the assessment that the situation in Metro Manila is about to get better, and predicted that daily incidence of coronavirus infection could go down to 500 by Valentine’s Day.

This, as the government gave the assurance it was addressing vaccine hesitance in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

The Senate has also adopted the resolution on the United Nations Convention of the Reduction of Statelessness.

And with the recent spate of increases in the prices of fuel, the Department of Agriculture (DA) has embarked on a fuel discount program to help farmers and the fisherfolk to cope with the price surge.

These are the top stories this Wednesday morning, Jan. 26, 2022.

Reeling from a fourth big-time fuel price increase this month, members of the militant transport group Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operator Nationwide (PISTON), and the Anakpawis party-list stage a protest by lying down on the sidewalk fronting a gasoline station on East Avenue in Quezon City on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022, asking for oil price control, among others.
