“Today, the DFA reports an increase both in the total number of confirmed cases and recoveries from COVID-19 among Filipinos abroad, with 119 and 75 cases, respectively, from Europe, and the Middle East and Africa,” it said in a statement.

The new infections also raised the case count to 11,364. The active cases, meanwhile, are at 3,182, at least 511 are undergoing treatment in the Asia Pacific, 183 in Europe, 2,332 in the Middle East/Africa, and 156 in the Americas.

Based on its latest bulletin, the DFA said 11 new fatalities were also reported in the Middle East and Africa. The death toll currently stands at 828.

It clarified that the reported increases are due to belated reports and privacy concerns in several countries in the Middle East and Africa.

To date, the Middle East and Africa remain to be the region with the most number of confirmed Covid-19 cases among Filipinos at 7,492, recoveries at 4,617, active cases at 2,332, and fatalities at 543.

The Americas, on the other hand, has the least numbers in all categories compared to other geographic regions, except in the total number of deaths, wherein Asia and the Pacific ranks lowest with a total of only nine.

There are 179 fatalities in the Americas, 156 active cases, and a total of 481 recoveries. (PNA)
