Of the active cases, it said that about 88.3 percent are mild, 8.8 percent are asymptomatic, 1.2 percent severe, and 1.7 percent are critical.

The majority of the newly announced cases were from the National Capital Region (NCR) with 2,079, Rizal with 286, Cavite with 174, Laguna with 168, and Bulacan with 142 cases.

The department also reported 563 new recoveries and 80 deaths, bringing the total number of recoveries to 186,058 and the number of deaths to 4,066.

As of Wednesday, the 89 licensed reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) laboratories and 29 licensed GeneXpert laboratories have conducted a total of 2,764,242 tests nationwide.

The DOH said it has a 21,100 total bed capacity dedicated to Covid-19 patients.
