The nation’s overall tally of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) patients who beat the disease have reached 1,473,009 as 5,766 new recoveries were recorded as of Monday.

The Department of Health (DOH) said the figure is equivalent to a 94.7-percent recovery rate from a total of 1,555,396 infections since the start of the pandemic last year.

The DOH also tallied 6,664 new confirmed cases, bringing the total number of active cases in the country to 55,140 or 3.5 percent of all cases.

Of the active cases, 93.6 percent are mild, 1.1 percent are asymptomatic, 2.3 percent are severe, 1.61 percent are moderate, and 1.4 percent are in critical condition.

Also logged were 23 new fatalities, raising the death toll to 27,247 or 1.75 percent of the total cases.
