The number of deaths, meanwhile, rose to 16,141 with 93 deaths added to the total.
The number of active COVID-19 cases was recorded at 127,006 today, and seems that the number of active cases or COVID-19 patients that are still being treated in hospitals and other COVID-19 facilities in the country are slightly declining.
