THE Department of Health (DOH) said the number of COVID-19 cases from APRIL 5-11, 2022 went down by 26 percent compared to March 29 to April 4, 2022.
This after the DOH registered 1,903 cases from April 5-11, which is equivalent to 271 cases per day.
DOH Spokesperson and Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said the positivity rate also went down among the tested COVID-19 cases that were tested.
This was logged in 1.6 percent compared to the 1.8 percent logged from March 29 to April 4.
Vergeire added that around 63 percent of those hospitalized up to March 26 are not yet fully vaccinated, while 76 percent of those who died have not yet completed their vaccination against COVID-19.
In the middle of the decline of COVID-19 cases in the country, Vergeire continues to remind the public not to be complacent, and to continue to comply with the minimum public health standards and to get vaccinated and get booster shots against the virus.
