Meanwhile, some 2,087 new infections brought the total number of active cases nationwide to 32,077 — lower than Sunday’s 33,526 active cases.

About 64.7 percent of these active cases are mild, 5.8 percent are asymptomatic, 4 percent are critical, 9.5 percent are severe, and 16.09 percent are moderate.

According to DOH data on November 6, about 5.2 percent of 43,206 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

“Six duplicates were removed from the total case count, and of these, five are recoveries. Moreover, 66 cases that were previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation,” it added.

All laboratories were operational on Nov. 6 while eight laboratories were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

The DOH noted the eight non-reporting laboratories contribute, on average, 0.8 percent of samples tested, and 1.2 percent of positive individuals based on data in the last 14 days.

To date, 43 percent of 4,000 intensive care unit beds, 31 percent of 20,300 isolation beds, 24 percent of 14,000 ward beds, and 25 percent of 3,200 ventilators are utilized by patients with Covid-19 nationwide.
