Coronavirus cases nearing 422,000; 8,185 dead — DoH

THE DEPARTMENT of Health (DoH) reported 1,118 coronavirus infections on Tuesday, bringing the total to 421,722.

The death toll rose by 12 to 8,185, while recoveries increased by 196 to 386,792, it said in a bulletin.

There were 26,745 active cases, 83.7% of which were mild, 7.9% did not show symptoms, 5.3% were critical, 2.8% were severe and 0.25% were moderate.

Caloocan City reported the highest number of new cases at 89, followed by Davao City and Laguna at 52 each, Quezon province at 47 and Quezon City at 46.

Ten duplicates were removed from the tally, while six cases tagged as recovered were reclassified as deaths, the agency said. Eleven laboratories failed to submit their data on Nov. 23, it said.

About 5.2 million people have been tested for the coronavirus as of Nov. 22, according DOH’s tracker website.

The coronavirus has sickened about 59.6 million and killed 1.4 million people worldwide, according to the Worldometers website, citing various sources including data from the World Health Organization (WHO).

About 41.2 million people have recovered, it said.

DoH on Monday warned the public against going to crowded places during the holiday season to avoid infection.

It said wearing a mask or face shield would not protect a person from the virus if he is in a crowded area. — Vann Marlo M. Villegas
