THE Department of Health (DOH) on Wednesday logged 13,573 additional Covid-19 cases, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 1,883,088.

The agency attributed “the relatively low number of cases today” to “lower laboratory output last Monday.” There were also 15,820 recoveries and 228 deaths recorded.

Of the total number of infections, 6.7 percent (125,378) are active, 91.6 percent (1,725,218) have recovered, 1.73 percent (32,492) died. The DOH said that 176 duplicates were removed from the total case count. Of these, 174 are recoveries.

Moreover, 152 cases previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation. All laboratories were operational on August 23, 2021, but seven laboratories were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

Based on data in the last 14 days, the seven non-reporting laboratories contribute, on average, 0.9 percent of samples tested and 1.0 percent of positive individuals.
