The Philippines Department of Health (DOH) reported 2,092 new cases of Covid-19 Friday, bringing the country total to 393,961.
The cities reporting the most cases include Davao City and Quezon City, each reporting more than 100.
7,485 total COVID-19 deaths have now been reported, approximately 2 percent of the total.
The Department of Health Center for Health and Development Ilocos Region (DOH-CHD-1) reported Thursday some 407,932 infants and children up to 59 months old from the four provinces of Ilocos Region (Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, La Union and Pangasinan) have been vaccinated against measles and rubella and given oral polio vaccine as of Nov. 4.
“The parents’ confidence in the immunization program has now returned as the DOH continuously conducts information dissemination with the help of other government agencies and the local government units,” DOH-CHD-1 information officer Dr. Rheuel Bobis said.
“The parents have now realized that the diseases (measles, rubella and polio) we are trying to prevent through the vaccines are the ones that can affect children and can even lead to death,” he added.
