The Department of Health (DOH) reported 237 new Covid-19 cases on Wednesday, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 2,836, 915.

The amount is only two cases higher than the 235 cases recorded by the DOH on Tuesday, which was the lowest single-day infection in 18 months.

The DOH reported in its most recent case bulletin that active cases had dropped to 10,193 after 565 new recoveries were reported. There are now 2,776,273 recoveries across the country.

There are around 3,876 mild cases, 567 asymptomatic cases, 391 critical cases, 1,867 severe cases, and 3,492 moderate cases among the active cases.

“Of the 237 cases reported today, 215 (91%) happened in the last 14 days – December 2 to 15, 2021. The top three regions with cases in the last two weeks were the NCR (43 percent), Region 10 (25 percent), and Region 6 (22 percent), according to the DOH.

The DOH also reported 100 more deaths, bringing the total number of Covid-19 fatalities in the country to 50,449.

“Due to late encoding of death information to COVIDKaya, only 14 of the 100 reported deaths occurred in December 2021, 32 or 32 percent in November 2021, 36 or 36 percent in October 2021, six or six percent in September 2021, six or six percent in August 2021, two or two percent in July 2021, one or one percent in June 2021, and three or three percent in May 2021,” it said.

According to the Department of Health, this issue is being coordinated with epidemiology and surveillance divisions to ensure that information is current.

According to DOH data from December 13, only 1% of the 30,397 people who were tested for Covid-19 were positive.

“Because they are recoveries, about five duplicates were eliminated from the total case count. In addition, 165 instances tested negative and were excluded from the total case count since 161 of them were recoveries “It was said. “In addition, after final validation, three cases that had previously been categorized as recoveries were reclassified as fatalities.”

On December 13, four laboratories were unavailable, and three laboratories were unable to transmit data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

Based on statistics from the previous 14 days, the seven laboratories provide 0.6 percent of samples tested and 0.8 percent of positive persons, according to the DOH.

Patients with Covid-19 have used 22 percent of 3,500 intensive care unit beds, 25 percent of 19,600 isolation beds, 12 percent of 12,400 ward beds, and 13 percent of 3,000 ventilators nationwide to date.

Meanwhile, in the National Capital Region, 24% of 1,200 intensive care unit beds, 20% of 4,700 isolation beds, 17% of 3,700 ward beds, and 14% of 1,000 ventilators are dedicated to patients with Covid-19.
