The Philippines registered 9,055 new coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) infections, the lowest reported cases since August 10, pushing the nationwide tally to 2,613,070.

The Department of Health (DOH) also confirmed that seven Covid-19 laboratories failed to submit their daily reports on time.

The low case report is due to a lower laboratory output on October 3. 

“The DOH is in constant coordination with the DICT to resolve technical issues with COVIDKaya,” the DOH said.

Today’s caseload brings the active cases to 103,077, also the lowest since August 15: 78.8% are mild, 11.4% are asymptomatic, 2.9% are severe, and 1.2% are in critical condition.

Meanwhile, the country’s recovery rate increased to 2,471,165 with 12,134 more patients winning the fight against the deadly respiratory illness.  

Death toll remained at 38,828 with zero fatality reported.

“DOH will then again issue necessary public advisories to report additional deaths not included in today’s case bulletin due to technical issues of COVIDKaya,” it said.

The DOH also announced that 25 duplicate infections were removed from the nationwide count. Ronald Espartinez
