The country’s overall tally of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) patients who have beaten the disease reached 1,608,528 as 10,720 new recoveries were recorded Sunday.

The Department of Health (DOH) said the figure is equivalent to a 92.4-percent recovery rate from a total of 1,741,616 infections since the start of the pandemic last year.

The DOH also tallied 14,749 new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of active cases in the country to 102,748 or 5.9 percent of all cases.

Of the active cases, 95.9 percent are mild, 1.1 percent are asymptomatic, 1.3 percent are severe, 0.93 percent are moderate, and 0.8 percent are in critical condition.

Also logged were 270 new fatalities, raising the death toll to 30,340 or 1.74 percent of the total cases.

The DOH said 364 duplicates were removed from the total case count as 360 of those were actually recoveries.

Meanwhile, five cases previously tagged as recoveries have been validated to be active cases and 141 cases that were previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation.

According to DOH data on Aug. 13, about 23.5 percent of 59,857 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

All laboratories were operational on Aug. 13 while three laboratories were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

Based on data in the last 14 days, the three non-reporting labs contribute, on average, 0.9 percent of samples tested and 1.1 percent of positive individuals.

To date, 70 percent of 3,900 intensive care unit beds, 60 percent of 20,100 isolation beds, 61 percent of 13,600 ward beds, and 51 percent of 3,000 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19 are in use nationwide.
