The Department of Health (DOH) on Monday logged 33 more patients who recovered from Covid-19, pushing the country’s total recoveries to 522,874.

In its 4 p.m. case bulletin, the DOH said the recoveries represent 92.8 percent of those who tested positive for the virus nationwide.

The agency also reported 2,288 new confirmed cases and six new deaths.

These figures brought the overall tally of active cases to 28,488 and the death toll to 12,094.

The DOH said about 88.1 percent of the active cases are mild, 5.7 percent are asymptomatic, 2.6 percent are severe, 0.85 percent are moderate, and 2.7 percent are in critical condition.

“One duplicate was removed from the total case count. Moreover, two cases previously tagged as recovered were reclassified as deaths after final validation,” it added.

DOH data on Feb. 21 showed that 1,103 or 6.6 percent of 16,588 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

Currently, there are 21,400 beds dedicated to patients with Covid-19.
