DOH data on Feb. 21 showed that 1,826 or 6.3 percent of 29,084 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

“Two labs were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Data Repository System on February 20, 2021,” it said.

Some 21,400 beds are dedicated to patients with Covid-19. Available are 62 percent of 1,900 intensive care unit beds, 68 percent of 13,500 isolation beds, and 77 percent of 6,000 ward beds.

About 79 percent of 2,000 ventilators are available for Covid-19 patients’ use.

The DOH reminded the public the importance of observing minimum public health standards — the proper wearing of face masks and full-coverage face shields, physical distancing, and not staying outdoors for a long period. (PNA)
