The country’s overall tally of patients who beat the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) has reached 2,292,006 as 24,391 new recoveries were recorded on Sunday.

The Department of Health (DOH) said the figure is equivalent to a 92-percent recovery rate from a total of 2,490,858 infections since the start of the pandemic last year.

The DOH also tallied 20,755 new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of active cases in the country to 161,447 or 6.5 percent of all cases.

Of the active cases, 81.1 percent are mild, 13.4 percent are asymptomatic, 1.6 percent are severe, 3.18 percent are moderate, and 0.7 percent are in critical condition.

The death toll remained at 37,405 or 1.50 percent of total cases.

“No deaths were reported today due to technical issues in the COVID-Kaya system. When the issue is resolved, the succeeding increase in deaths in the following reports will be due to the previous days’ backlogs,” the DOH said.

It added that the Department of Information and Communications Technology is addressing issues encountered by the system.

The DOH also noted that 72 duplicates were removed from the total case count as 63 of those were recoveries.

Meanwhile, 88 cases previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation.

As per the September 24 data, about 24.9 percent of 74,460 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

All laboratories were operational that day but two laboratories were not able to submit data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

Based on data in the past 14 days, the two non-reporting labs contributed, on average, 0.1 percent of samples tested and 0.1 percent of positive individuals.

To date, 75 percent of 4,400 intensive care unit (ICU) beds are in use nationwide, along with 65 percent of 21,100 isolation beds, 68 percent of 16,000 ward beds, and 54 percent of 3,300 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19.

In Metro Manila, 76 percent of 1,600 ICU beds are in use, along with 55 percent of 4,800 isolation beds, 64 percent of 4,600 ward beds, and 57 percent of 1,100 ventilators. (PNA)
