The Philippines’ official tally for the number of total Covid-19 infections in the country has climbed up to 44,254, with a record daily increase of 2,434 today, Jul 5.

According to the advisory from the Department of Health, the number of infected cases has risen considerably because of the easing of the lockdown in key cities in the country, which led to "increased contact among the population."

Again, a majority of the new cases were recorded in Metro Manila, which had 1,069; followed by Central Visayas (including Cebu City, which has been put in strict lockdown because of a surge in infections) with 602; various areas, 765; and repatriates, seven.
The DOH also recorded 489 new recoveries, bringing the total to 11,942. Seven new fatalities were also reported, raising the death toll to 1,297.

The previous graph that showed the actual total tally of positive cases based from submitted reports of testing facilities, is, however, no longer being shown on the DOH website, Facebook and and chat group accounts.


The last time this appeared was yesterday, where the tally from the previous day (Jul 3) showed there were already 53,778 cases, after a total of 738,620 individuals were tested across the country.
