"Tatlo po and direksyon na kaniyan tinatahak. Una, transparency and communication; pangalawa, mas testing; at pangatlo, effective contact tracing," Padilla said in a statement.

Padilla hopes that all local government units in the country will understand and implement the action plan that was set forth by the national government. 
"Lahat po ito ay sang-ayon sa ating national action plan template na sana ay maintindihan at magawa ng lahat ng ating mga LGUs sa iba't ibang panig ng bansa," he added.
