Low healthcare use and mortality from increased immunity in PH

Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino


A health official said on Wednesday that higher immunity has kept the country’s healthcare use rates low and deaths from the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) under control.

The increasing immunity of the Filipino population, according to Department of Health (DOH) officer-in-charge Maria Rosario Vergeire, is a result of both natural immunity and immunity from Covid-19 vaccines, she stated during a media session in Pasay City.

Alam niya nung nag-uumpisa ang Omicron variant dito sa ating bansa maraming nagkasakit, maraming nagkaroon nitong natural immunity, pero experts would see hindi ito magiging pare-pareho sa bawat tao, hindi ito sinasabi na magla-last rin ito ng

The World Health Organization raised worry on Tuesday about the rising number of Covid-19 fatalities worldwide. Globally, Covid-19 has been linked to around 669 million illnesses and 6.74 million fatalities.

The DOH is “very confident,” according to Vergeire, that it can effectively address any future concerns of Covid-19 in terms of healthcare utilization, even though it views every death caused by the disease as a problem.

In comparison to when the epidemic first began two years ago, she pointed out that hospitals are more prepared and have a better capacity to respond.

“Of course, this does not mean that we become complacent; kelangan tuloy-tuloy pa rin ‘yung ating vigilance, saka lagi tayong cautious, para hindi tayo babalik dun sa dati nating estad,” she said. “We need to continue with our vigilance, we need to be always cautious, so we do not return to previous state

More than 4.07 million coronavirus cases and more than 65,716 fatalities have been reported in the nation thus far.

It presently has 270 new Covid-19 cases every day on average, which is 35% less than the 417 instances it had the previous week.

The DOH recorded 26,458 daily Covid-19 infections on January 8 when the extremely contagious Omicron strain invaded the nation.

The number is higher than the number of cases recorded on September 11, 2001, when the lethal Delta strain was at its worst and reached 26,303.

Approximately 73,820,001 or 94.52 percent of the country’s target population (78,100,578) had gotten the Covid-19 vaccine as of January 23, and 21,293,632 people had received their booster injections.

Only 370 of the 2,299 intensive care unit (ICU) beds are in use, or 16.1%, whereas 3,509 of the 18,410 non-ICU beds are in use or 19.1%.
