The OCTA Research Group declared that Metro Manila was ready to move to Alert Level 1 next week, even as Metro Manila mayors were expected to decide late Tuesday night, Feb. 22, 2022, on whether to recommend the de-escalation or not.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos regrets the fatal flight of a PNP chopper that was on its way to pick him up from Balesin, Quezon, that took the life of a crewman and injured its two pilots.

Meanwhile, a report from the Manila Bulletin Business Team showed that the most immediate impact on the Philippines of a Russian invasion in Ukraine could mean more fuel price increases, which have already been on an upward trend for the past eight weeks.

Assistance has also started to come for hapless overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Hong Kong, who were sent off by their employers even without any place to sleep after they contracted the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

These are among the top stories this Wednesday morning, Feb. 23, 2022.
