It's the 4th straight day that more than 20k new cases were recorded in the country

The number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the Philippines hit a new record high Monday, with the Department of Health reporting 22,415 more infections.

The new record surpassed the previous all-time high of 22,366 cases recorded on Aug. 30. It also marked the fourth consecutive day that the country's daily infection tally rose to over 20,000.

The new record did not include results from eight laboratories which failed to submit reports on time. They accounted for around 2.3% of all samples tested, and the same percentage for positive cases detected over the past two weeks.

The country’s total Covid-19 tally is now 2,103,331, of which 159,633 or 7.6% are active.

The record rise in cases came as the government announced the further easing of gathering restrictions in Metro Manila. From Sept 8, the National Capital Region will be put under general community quarantine, the second least restrictive level.

Also on Monday, 103 more people succumbed to the disease, raising the death toll to 34,337, or 1.63 of the overall infection.


Meanwhile, an additional 20,109 recovered from the disease, raising the total recovery figure to 1,909,361. That’s 90.8 percent of the total number of infected people.

Around 92.1% have mild symptoms, 3.3% are asymptomatic, 2.48% have moderate and 1.4% have severe symptoms, while 0.6% are critical.

Recoveries, on the other hand, rose to 1,909,361 with an additional 20,109. This means 90.8% of all cases have gotten well.

However, the positivity rate which experts keep a close eye on as it indicates how fast the virus is spreading has risen to 28.8%, well above the accepted critical rate of 20%. The number refers to the percentage of infected people out of all tested on the same day.

Officials say localized lockdowns are more effective in stopping the virus spread (PNA) 

With Metro Manila moving to GCQ, the DOH said the emphasis should be on localized lockdowns, as this would be more effective in preventing the spread of the disease.

At the same time, health officials confirmed that the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus has been detected in all 17 regions in the country.
