Critical and severe cases are increasing but remain within threshold: DOH

The Department of Health said on Tuesday that although the proportion of severe and serious Covid-19 cases in hospitals is rising, it is still below the cutoff.

According to DOH data, nearly 9% of hospital admissions during the previous four weeks were due to serious and dangerous infections.

Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire, the DOH Officer-in-Charge, stated at a media event, “We confirm that the quantity or proportion of the severe and critical infections had been reported to be increasing during these past weeks.”

“When we look at these severe and critical infections as a collective, they are not over 10% or the 1,000 instances criterion,” she continued. “This is a list of severe and critical infections, but when you look at them individually, they are not over either of those thresholds.”

The DOH recorded 811 severe and critical cases on Monday or 9.7 percent of all Covid-19 hospital admissions.

According to Vergeire, 60% of the cases are either completely or partially unvaccinated.

Through its “PinasLakas” program, the DOH hopes to reduce the number of serious and life-threatening cases that end up in hospitals.

A total of 159,376,952 doses of the Covid-19 vaccination have already been given.

71,880,074 people have already had all of their vaccinations, while 16,563,542 have received booster doses.
