The Department of Health (DOH) on Sunday reported 862 additional coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases, raising the overall tally to 18,086.

DOH said 846 of the new cases are “late” or results belatedly reported and were only verified recently, while 16 are “fresh cases”.

Of the fresh cases, six are from the National Capital Region (NCR) while the remaining 10 are from other regions.

Meanwhile, 238 of the late cases are from NCR, 81 from Central Visayas, 235 are repatriates, and the remaining 292 are from other regions.

The DOH also reported 101 new recovered cases and seven new deaths.

In its case bulletin, the DOH noted that the fresh cases are based on the daily accomplishment reports submitted by only 15 out of 42 operational laboratories.

“Late cases reported from May 28 to 31 are based on the validation of complete line lists from 27 operational laboratories and the partial line list from one laboratory. No more late cases will be reported until the remaining 14 operational labs submit their line lists,” the DOH said in a message to reporters. (PNA)
