An additional 985 cases of Covid-19 cases were reported in the Philippines as of 4pm today, Jun 29, raising the country’s total tally to 36,438.

Of the new cases reported, 643 were fresh cases, meaning the results were made known to the patient within three days; the remaining 342 cases were late cases. Only 38 of 67 operational laboratories submitted their test results today.

There were also 270 recoveries for the day, bringing the overall figure to 9,956.

Of the 24,525 active cases, the majority, or 95.6%, have mild symptoms, while 3.8% are asymptomatic, 0.5% (or 126) are severe cases, and 0.1% (26) are critical.

Eleven deaths were reported, making the total tally 1,255.

Meanwhile, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque has rejected the World Health Organization's report that the Philippines has recorded the highest number of new infections in the Western Pacific Region.


"We beg to disagree," Roque said.

"Kung idi-divide ninyo ang kaso sa per million population, ito po ang lalabas na pinakamataas sa Western Pacific Region:  India, 549,197; followed by Pakistan 202,955; Bangladesh, 137,787; Indonesia,  54010;  Singapore, 43, 459; tapos po ang Pilipinas at 34,455."

But according to WHO data, the Philippines added nearly 10,000 confirmed cases in the past two weeks alone, which was almost triple the number recorded by Singapore in the same period.
