Only 4% of the 56.6K current Covid-19 patients are serious.

MANILA, Philippines β€” Only 4% of the more than 56,000 active Covid-19 cases are serious, but between 12 and 15% of hospital admissions are classed as severe to critical, according to a health official.

According to Department of Health (DOH) Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, a big number of hospital admissions are asymptomatic and minor, according to a Palace briefing.

“Kasabay ng patuloy na pagbaba ng mga kaso ng Covid-19 ang pagbaba ng bilang ng severe and critical cases na-ospital,” she added.

On February 20, the Department of Health’s nationwide admissions data revealed 1,151 severe cases (11.35%) and 450 critical cases (4.84%).

In the meantime, 1,724 people (16.24 percent) are symptomatic, 3,253 people (31.28%) are mild, and 3,881 people (36.29%) are moderate.

The reduction in critical and severe cases, according to Vergeire, can be related to the immunization campaign, as Covid-19 vaccines prevent death or severe symptoms.

With negative one-week and two-week growth rates and a moderate risk average daily attack rate, the country is currently classified as low risk for Covid-19 infections.

“Sa lahat ng rehiyon, mas mababa na po sa isang libo ang mga na-itatalang kaso kada araw para sa linggong ito ang mga na-itatalang kaso kada araw para sa linggong ito ang mga na-itatalang kaso kad In the CAR (Cordillera Administrative Region) and Region 10 (Northern Mindanao), ang lahat ng rehiyon ay nasa low-risk case classification (cases logged are less than one thousand everyday for this week in all areas). Except for CAR and Region 10, all regions are classified as low-risk),” Vergeire explained.

The DOH reported 1,019 new cases of Covid-19 as of 4 p.m. Tuesday, the lowest single-day tally this year, for a total of 56,668 active cases.

A total of 2,988 fresh recoveries were made, with 12 deaths.
