The country’s overall tally of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) patients who have recovered from the disease has reached 2,478,616 as 7,425 new recoveries were recorded as of Thursday.

The Department of Health (DOH) said the figure is equivalent to a 94.1-percent recovery rate from a total of 2,632,881 infections since the start of the pandemic last year.

The DOH also tallied 10,019 new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of active cases in the country to 115,328 or 4.4 percent of all cases.

Of the active cases, 77.7 percent are mild, 13.6 percent are asymptomatic, 1.2 percent are severe, 5.33 percent are moderate, and 1.2 percent are in critical condition.

There were 109 new fatalities, bringing the nation’s death toll to 38,937 or 1.48 percent of the total cases.

The DOH said it will be reporting additional deaths tomorrow in a separate advisory, to reflect numbers not included in the previous case bulletins due to technical issues encountered with COVIDKaya.

It added 55 duplicates were removed from the total case count as 35 of those were recoveries.

Moreover, 56 cases that were previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation.

According to DOH data on Oct. 5, about 18.1 percent of 56,418 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

All laboratories were operational on Oct. 5 while four laboratories were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

Based on data in the last 14 days, the four non-reporting laboratories contribute, on average, 0.3 percent of samples tested and 0.4 percent of positive individuals.

To date, 72 percent of 4,500 intensive care unit beds, 56 percent of 21,100 isolation beds, 60 percent of 15,500 ward beds, and 51 percent of 3,300 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19 are in use nationwide.

In Metro Manila, 71 percent of 1,600 intensive care unit beds, 48 percent of 4,800 isolation beds, 55 percent of 4,300 ward beds, and 52 percent of 1,100 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19 are being used. (PNA)
